what an incredible turnout for the 3rd edition of the greenwich alliance for education turkey trot! there were about 850 participants combined for the 5k and 1 miler this morning. and, in a first, i was one of them! in a break from the prior two year when i volunteered but didn't run, this year i ran the 5k race in between stints at the finish line.
in something of a surprise, the 21:25 finish, 6:54 pace, turned out to be my fastest 5k of the year! given crowded first mile - i didn't break 7 minutes for that one - and that i missed the markers for the 2nd and 3rd miles, i was even more astonished with the sub-7 minute pace.
here are the race results from hi-tek racing.
the rest of my photos are posted on facebook.
