Pink Power 5k in town.  Road bike 7mi. over to race, 1.1 warmup, race, 1.1 CD, bike homw 7mi.

Race went okay - 5:50 for mile 1, okay through 2, and died for last 1.1.  Really though I'd be more like 18:15... plenty more opportunities for that after Carmel Marathon in April.  Grand Canyon trip coming up next week - maybe I'll see some of you crazy guys out there! :)  We're just hiking, though - hopefully some early morning trail running is in the cards though. :)  We'll be on Hermit.

Have a good trip. nice race. I'd kill for a 18 minute 5k right now. My legs just don't have that kind of speed. I'm sure you are feeling it after following that up with 20 miles today.
