This morning, Cheri and I got up early and ran a 5K in Beloit. It was 35 degrees with a rain/snow mix. Not exactly ideal conditions.
I was hoping to break 20 minutes, and I figured I had a good chance today since the course was really flat. There's not much to say about my race. I finished in 19:23, a new PR. 3rd overall, 2nd in my division.
But....Cheri dominated. She won the women's division and took home a trophy, medal and bag that says "I have a run track mind." Pretty cool. She came really close to a PR and shattered the course record in her age group. Very impressive for her first 5K in about a year.
I was planning on doing a time trial tomorrow, but the temp at the start of the race is going to be below freezing and there's a chance of rain so I figured I'll sleep in and go for a ride later in the day when it warms up to a balmy 40 degrees.
