Buffalo Chase at Buffalo Trace Distillery

This morning my mom, stepdad and I ran a 4th of July 5K in Frankfort. They had been thinking about it for awhile since it would be my step-dad's first 5K but I didn't decide to do it until last week. First off my parents did great! Barry came in at 32:30 and he was disappointed with that since he had been running closer to 30 minutes BUT I think it is great for his first 5K. Mom was around 36 minutes and she is just now back to running after a lot of trouble with her back and hip. I am very proud of both of them.
I did run for speed and was curious to what would happen. I PRed back in May with a 23:30 and have been closer to 22 minutes during my speed work. But today it didn't happen. The list of excuses could include: just ran 20 miles in 2 days, ate crap all weekend, ate the wrong breakfast bar, super crowded start and I had to poop. But maybe it boils down to I did not have it in me. I rocked Mile 2 at 7:24 but Mile 1 and 3 were closer to the 7:45 so I ended with a time of 24:00 on the nose which is a 7:44 pace. I will take it and move on with Marathon training. Even though I would love to hold a 7:30 pace for an entire 5K.

Off to eat more crap at a cook out : )
