What a great morning to run a 5K or 5 Miler? That was my dilemma when I woke up because which race, the Norwalk Summer Series 5 Miler or Westport Summer Series 5K, was still an open question. Ultimately it was the shorter distance - haha -that led to Westport and Longshore Country Club and lining up for the 5K. Truth be told, my legs were still a bit sore from the "speed work" at Van Cortlandt Park Thursday night!
As for the race itself, I managed to squeak out a 21:37, 6:59 pace, unofficially. When then the results were posted, it became 21:39 (losing 2 seconds, officially) and the pace being adjusted upward to 7:06 - because the officially measured distance worked out to 3.04 miles! Yikes, so much for my sub-7 on a short 5K course - haha :D
Time aside, running at Longshore and along Compo Beach on a gorgeous Saturday morning is wonderful!
Here are the official race results from the Westport Road Runners.
