Today was the 30th annual
Race That's Good for Life
5k race in Oak
Park. I had run this in
but not afterwards as the spring marathons got in the way. As I am now on a
more relaxed (and seemingly non-marathon ;-) schedule, I was able to
participate again. Really nice to leave your house fifty minutes before race
start and cycle over... And kudos to the Oak Park
who once again put a nice race together.
Given the lack of (more intense) training, I am also a lot slower: 21:50.7 was
the chip time, or a 7:02 pace. We will see if I ever get faster again. On
race day I am usually motivated; it remains to be seen if I get over to the
track in the early morning to push myself through some speedwork.
