I got up earlier than I do for work, an awful 5:10 or “too dark early”, as my wife puts it. I put on Body Glide, running clothes, my Nike running shoes and generally got ready. We arrived an hour before the race and watched the sunrise from the beach.
I ran at the Causelife 5k in Huntington Beach.
I had the following goals:
- Run as fast as I could, balls to the wall.
- Finish with a 30:?? time with under 30 min as a stretch goal.
- Keep the pace about 10 to 10:15 min p/mile.
Me at the start line before anyone lined up and the sunrise.
Warmed up and ready to go!
The starting line a few minuets before the race.
I finished the race in 29:45!!! which is a pace of 9’35”! This was awesome!!
This would be my fastest 5K ever!
