This race technically started at 11:58 pm according to my Garmin, so its on Friday :)

WU - 1.5 mi. w/ strides and a couple of bathroom visits... late night race, weird stomach feeling. 

Ran about as even as I have run splits in a 5k.  This was a competitive local race with lots of high school kids running.

Mile 1 - I was in about 20th place, but at a comfortable pace - 5:42

Mile 2 came a little harder, but still feeling strong.  I've passed about 8 of the people I will pass by now - 5:39.  Me and another guy are battling for 9th place for the last half of the race, and I start having GI problems when I see the lights of the high school track where the finish is.

Mile 3 is a difficult effort and the kick around the track has me feeling like I'm not going to make it without an accident :(

I manage a 5:41 mile 3 and 0:32 for 0.11mi. for 10 th place - the youngster blew past me on the backstretch.  Oh well its a PR - without the sickness, its a sub 17:30! :)  Very happy with the result this evening.  CD - 0.8 mi. jog with a couple of the guys.

5k Race - 17:34
