104 IRENE M 372 48 4/30 F San Diego 27:44 8:56
My WRT had me at 27:35. This wasn't a chipped event.
I purposely didn't go all out on this run. I kept my pace mostly in the low to mid 8 minute mile range for the first 2 miles then eased off towards the end in the low 9 minute mile range, which brought my average down, but it's all good. I felt great. As expected, the course was flat and went through a new "village" that used to be a military base. The streets and paths were new, so no cracks and ditches to be careful on. No hills, either. It was a very comfortable run, unlike my last 5k run which was a struggle. I also came in 4th in my age group, but this was a smaller, newer event, so those super fast women who have 7 minute miles weren't there. I did see a woman there who I'd seen at previous events and we chatted a bit about the fall events. Since this event was all about the Girl Scouts, there were a lot of kids under 12 there, which made for a very kick-back event. This event was great for my mind.
