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.

Next up...

the only PB's Abby and I set this weekend was whilst competing in the Pringle challenge. Lets just say that tube of salt and vinegar (which was party size by the way) didn't last long.

Well done for winning Cheri, very impressive. Mike, good effort too you've got to love a PB.
