it was cold - and windy - for the cht ghost & goblin 5k this morning! when i up it was 30 degrees outside, by the time the race started, on sherwood island in westport, the temperature had climbed into the 40's, but the wind still hadn't died down. i wore two long-sleeved shirts, a wool hat, and gloves! a little overdressed when all was said and done - yet not by much :D
as for the race itself, i ran a 21:38, 6:58 pace (unofficial, since the results haven't been posted). i was more than happy with that because i haven't done very much speedwork during the month and a half. the race was notable because 2 guys cut the course in the last quarter mile. i haven't seen anything like that in years. when we finished i called them out on it. all they had was a lame "we were told to go that way" which was b/s - but what else could they say under the circumstance?!
here are the race results.
the rest of my photos are up on facebook.
