Fall Race Season is Upon Us
Tonight marked the first event of the fall – the Choicepoint Windward 5k. My time – 26:38, for an 8:34 per mile pace. I’m quite happy with that outcome – my fastest 5k last year was at 28 minutes, in 45 degree weather at 8am on a Saturday morning. Tonight’s race was at 6:30 pm after a long day at work and a temperature of 75 degrees. I left before finding out the winning times – I assume in my age group that I have to break 25 minutes to bring home hardware. Not to worry, this was more of a tune up race to get used to running in packs again. I haven’t done that since the Peachtree back on July 4th.
What’s on tap this season?? Glad you asked
10/8 – Subaru Emerald Point Triathlon at Lake Lanier
10/14 – Thrills in the Foothills 50k bike ride in Cornelia
11/23 – Thanksgiving Day Atlanta Marathon
There’s something I’m forgetting in there at the beginning of November. Guess we’ll find out what that is when I blog about it. Until then, may all your winds be tailwinds.
