2009 Miller Park Zoo – 5K – 26:43

Leave a comment

Miller Park 5K Zoo Run this year was a lot of fun! The weather was perfect! 55 degrees, breezy, overcast. It was unusually warm for this early in March. I can remember freezing at this same race last year.

Rob ran this one too, plus some of our friends were also out there. Rob and I did a quick warm up of .4 miles and then it was time to get going. This race has some gradual hills in each mile.

I caught up to Rob at 1.5 miles and it was so nice to see him out there, he came in at 27:16.

I was hoping for a better finish time. I wonder if that will always be the case. 🙂 I improved on my previous year’s time of 28:07. I didn’t place this year, the field was full of fast women putting me in 8th for my age group. At least I’m still improving, even if it’s at a slower rate than I would want.

Splits:
Mile 1 8:01
Mile 2 8:43
Mile 3 8:53
.1 Mile 1:06

Time: 26:43

Stats:
Overall: 104/240
F 30-34: 8/25

My pacing in this race varied more than I would like so I just need to keep working on that, especially with hills.

I have my 10 mile long run tomorrow and am looking forward to it!

Updated with some pictures from Mike and Jayme, thanks you two!
