My first mile (5:55) seemed fast considering it took me a minute to weave through the crowd at the start. Mile 2 (6:12) seemed slow and mile 3 (5:55) was either fast or I did better than I thought turning around a cone positioned on a small out-and-back section near the end. Of course the last 1/10 of a mile was fast (kick time baby!) and I came in at 18:37, which averaged out to 6-minute pace exactly. Sweet!
I placed 4th in my new age division and 16th overall. Enjoyed some chili, conversation and laughter with some good friends afterwards (pics still to come).
