total 5k in 26:25, avg pace 8:30 - new PR
That's what my race looks like when, in an exercise induced brainfog, I mistakenly thought my PR pace was 8:12 and I was only aiming to stay between 8:15 and 8:30 to get in a good race. Stupid, stupid me! That totally explains why I started to fall apart in mile 3 - I was going way too fast!
The race was a lot of fun - the weather was almost perfect, maybe a little windy, many silly costumes were to be seen, and I got to hang with my club for a race. I was exhausted at the end of the race, but now I know why. There was pudding available and I won a sweatshirt in the race raffle. What more could I want?
