Jumped into a 5k, in my own neighborhood, my son ran it as well, we’ve done this race for many years, his last before heading to college. Great fun, this race is known for a terrific post-race party with exceptional craft beer from Buffalo’s Flying Bison Beer Co. Was hot and humid but not insanely so. A good night for all, my son placing 2nd in the 15-19 group and my placing first master.
For a local race, it’s gotten competitive over the years, a couple of recently graduated elite runners came in to race along with the usual suspects.
The healing left foot hung in there, did not go beyond soreness. No limping afterwards! Still not 100% for sure, but very encouraging. Trying to run even paced and not aggravate the foot too much, went through the 1st mile in 5:25 and finished in 17:26, 9th overall. Considering the trials of the past month, very happy with the results. And well rewarded with the terrific party afterwards!
