It was actually balmy at FDR Park this morning! And with the temperature at 33 degrees for the start, it was practically a heat wave give the sub-zero wind chills of last week! The Freezer 5K was my first race since December - plenty of running, just haven't gotten myself over to a start line for a race (of any distance) until today.
I was pleasantly surprised w/my 22:30 (22:32 official), 7:15 pace. Amazingly, for little if no speed work this season, it was about 6 seconds faster than my 2018 Freezer 5K! Last year that was good enough for 2nd AG - but this year I dropped 3 places to 5th in my AG - so much for shaving off those few seconds - ha!
Anyway, regardless of time - it was great to be out there running (dare I say... fast) for a change!
Hiroshi and I hamming it up after we finished :D
I'll add a link to the official results once they've been posted.
