#WashHeights5K done!

22:42 (still far from my PR, which I have been saying it for way too long!) but a good race overall! Loved the pace dropping 20 secs per mile and now wishing it was a 10K. The hills on the cords are rough but it is such a scenic view. Mostly if you never go up there! Great weather for a 5K even though I was a little cool in the corral for 10 minutes, but it turned out fantastic. After the race, I managed to run some ok 5.5 miles home given that the NYC half is in 2 weeks and I haven’t run more than 8 miles more than once (12 miles in January) since the marathon in November. I still got home faster than Juan even though I stopped at Dunkin’ Donuts and two chats with Ned and Daphne!

Happy March! #runforlife
