Close...but no cigar!

My PR in a 5K is 28:05. That was my goal for last night. Ideally, I wanted anything with a 27 in front!  I missed my goal by about 5 or 6 seconds and finished at 28:10 (or 11)...need to wait for official results.  I was disappointed to say the least. 

Having said that, I'm trying to keep it in perspective.  My next 5K will be late fall early winter.  On the course I set my PR last year.  Last night it was 80 degrees.  I'm much faster in the cold.  Also, the race was at 7 pm last night.  I prefer to run in the AM and do much better on fresh legs. 

So, I guess all in all to be only 5 seconds slower in 80 degrees in the evening wasn't too shabby.
