5 km Race

Went out for a race today. I had two objectives :

  1. Beat my best time
  2. Beat my older brother

Both objectives were accomplished. I was holding a good pace for most of the race, with my brother a few steps behind. Somewhere near the 4km mark he fell behind and I also picked up the pace a bit. As the finish line came into view, I was trying to decide when to break into a full sprint so that I would just make it. I think I could have started 50 yards earlier, but it didn’t really matter because I smashed my best time by almost 2 minutes.

New time to beat is now 23:39.

This time gave me a 10th overall finish and 2nd in my age group. Not too shabby.
