Beaches Spring Sprint 5k – 2011

I decided to pace 10 yr old Cam. Well, not exactly decided, it just happened. We started together, I felt good so I decided to race it. Cam was still with me after a couple of minutes and I felt he may be going too fast so I said to stick with me and slowed down a bit. He ran well and steady at a pace we were shooting for which would be sub 21 min. He ended up with 20:44 – a PR by 45 seconds and 1st in the 12 and under Age Group.

For me, at that pace, after a good warmup, ended up being a nice 5k tempo run day. There will be plenty more chances at 5k later this year so I was happy with the day on the whole.

Another highlight of the day was daughter Sarah running a 19:15 to finish 3rd woman overall and 2nd in her age group (18 and under I think). She is set to break 19 minutes in Boston.

And Anita, who is still plagued by a nagging hip injury, actually felt good and nearly beat her best time for 5k. She will soon I know it!

Crazy mad runner, wanting to be fitter and faster but too busy to do it right. Still, I keep trying.
