Deutschen Pfest 5k Pfun Run

PR Baby!  What an awesome morning for a run - 70 degrees and 87% humidity.  437 people ran the race this year, a fairly large group for a local race.  I forgot how awesome this course is, mostly flat and shaded and only a 7 min drive from home.  Not to mention they serve beer and pizza at the finish line!  

My official race time was 25:26, 8:09 pace.  I came in 4th place in my age group and 13th female overall!!!   
Based on my Garmin:  Avg pace - 8:19
Mile 1 - 8:13, Mile 2 - 8:43, Mile 3 - 8:09, last 0.6 - 0:21 (5:40 pace)

I shaved off over 2 mins from my race time of 27:34 in 2010, I didn't run in 2011 as Ry was less than a month old.  I'm very happy to say I met my goal of sub 9 min miles. :)  It was a beautiful morning for a run with family and friends.   Check out the picture from my post 2 years ago!  Boy have those kids grown!  This was also Ry's first race, the hubby graciously offered to push him in the stroller so I could go all out and run hard.
