take it as they come

sunday

You take the good with the ‘not as good,’ right?  Had a decent 5k run this morning at big local race, the Linda Yalem run, finishing in 16:54, 5th overall, 1st master.  Proud of the result and happy to get under 17 min.  The times overall were slower this year, even with good running weather, the winner in 16:20 was about a minute slower than last year’s and my time wouldn’t have broken into the top 10 in many of the past races.

It was tactical race this year, no one wanted to take the pace out, and I was able to hang with the lead pack for most of the race  

You run enough races, you know that sometimes a PR gets you nowhere in the placings and at other times, a relatively slow time gets you near the top.  You take it as they come and be proud of the effort.  Very happy with my run this morning.
