Take the Lake 5K

Take the Lake 5K, 18:20 (5:50 pace; splits — 5:49, 5:59, 5:50). 11th of 586. Sub-18:00 remains ellusive; this is pretty much as fast as I can run I think.

"When I have neither pleasure nor pain and have been breathing for a while the lukewarm insipid air of these so-called good and tolerable days, I feel so bad in my childish soul that I smash my moldering lyre of thanksgiving in the face of the slumbering god of contentment and would rather feel the very devil burn in me than this warmth of a well-heated room." — Hermann Hesse, Steppenwolf

Hi. I was actually at that race today too. I'm sorry you missed your goal...I'm impressed by your time though. Hopefully soon you'll hit it. Maybe in cooler temps?

I didn't blog about this b/c I was too busy ranting (i didn't have a great race :) but I thought it was a really nice venue that I hadn't been to before and I thought it was a nice race overall. (Though you must have been behind the little kids at the starting line? I'm curious if they ever moved them?)

Anyway, good luck in your training.
