Kristi 5K

Jenn and I ran the Kristi 5K this past Saturday (3/3/13).  It was sunny and 50 degrees, which would have been fine if it wasn't for the wind.  15-22mph winds really makes you cold when you're just hanging around the lake waiting for the race to start, especially when you're only wearing shorts and short sleeves.  We ran counterclockwise around the lake.  Mile 2 was the toughest and had the worst wind resistance.  I finished in 26:25 (Garmin, there was no chip timing) and the course was a bit short at 2.88 miles (Jenn said she got 2.93 miles).  I took 1st place in my age group and recieved a medal.  I was the 3rd female to cross the finish line and 9th or 10th overall.  Jenn took 1st female overall and received a nice trophy.

Avg pace - 9:11
Mile 1 - 9:09, Mile 2 - 9:38, last 0.88 - 7:38 (8:44 pace)
