Beautiful morning for a run in downtown Cleveland. I know this area well as I walk a good portion of this course to get my steps in at work.
Five records fell this morning…fastest 1/2 mile, 1K, 1 mile, 2 mile and 5K. I went out quick…probably too quick as I was a bit slower climbing back up from Lake Erie. I finished fifth in my age group with an 8:29 pace. I was fifty-fifth out of 111.
Once again I started in the middle of the pack. I’m going to try to move up to the front in these single start multiple distance races. I get caught up in the 5K runners and the longer distance runners get an easy minute on me while I weed through the pack.
I’m happy with the run this morning. I have the #BernieShuffle 5K next week with almost the same course. I’ll be ready…decide to dominate!
