Race: Christian Mission Turkey Trot (3.1 Miles) 00:21:10, Place overall: 22, Place in age division: 3

Ran a 5k and although this is one of my slowest 5k's in years, I felt good in that I haven't run anything this hard since summer. I'll need to incorporate a little more speed work over the next month to improve my leg turnover. Ended up 3rd in the Masters Division and 22nd overall w/a 21:10. Fairly challenging course and happy to keep under a 7min pace.
