what a fantastic morning to run the greenburgh mile! no humidity! i've run this mile about 7 times (more than half of those were with katie). ithink that the last time was back in 2009 - so this was a welcome return.
my target was a 6:20 or so. i've been putting in some speed work at the track over the last 3 weeks and i was anxious to see if my speed was starting to come back. i warmed up with an easy 3 miles before the start. the mile itself came in a 6:04 - a big, pleasant, surprise for me! i even had a chance to squeak in under 6 minutes, but just didn't have enough kick to bring it in.
i finished 6th overall; i was passed by a couple of runners in the last quarter mile. hopefully, more speed work will help me get back a finishing kick. my 6:04 was good enough to win my age group. it was the just off the 6:02 finish time i had back in 2009!
i'll add a link to the results once they're posted.
