it was hot this morning - easily in the 80's and sunny - when the westport summer series 5k got under way a little after 8 at the longshore county club. i didn't have a particular time goal in mind but i thought a sub-22 minute finish was possible. but when i struggled with a 7:06 first mile - most of which was in the shade - that target seemed out of reach. my 22:11, 7:16 pace, came close, but the 7:22 last mile did it for me. even so, under the circumstances, i was more than pleased :D
here are the race results from hitek racing.
i posted a few more photos on facebook.
