Sweetwater Elementary 5K

I ran in the 3rd Annual Sweetwater Elementary 5K this past weekend and had a great time. I came in 2nd overall with a time of 20:11. The course was a bit long at 3.18 miles but they are never exact and everyone ran the same course so it was fine.

I am ready for the first triathlon of my season next Sunday. It is an olympic distance with a lake swim. I am very anxious to see how much I have improved over last year. I have put in a lot of work and my run times reflect that. My slowest 5K this year has been a 20:40 and all my others have been under 20:30 and a PR race of 19:39. I have built a decent bike base for the first time ever as well so I look forward to a good race this weekend.

Next month is Daytona Frogman and St. Anthony's is 2 weeks after that. I am looking at a busy race season and look forward to racing well and staying injury free.

I will post results with race reports as time permits.
