Better than expected
Well that was pretty cool, don't get many days when all goes to plan so you have to enjoy them when you get them!
I felt pretty good waking up this morning. Sinusses still messed up and still had a cold but it didn't feel like it was going to impact my performance. Baby sitter came right on time and I arrived at the race in plenty of time. I was actually really pumped in my car on the way which is always a good sign- music blasting and singing along! Legs felt really peppy in the warm up too- one of those days when you don't feel you even need to stretch much. race report is on r2w link so I'm not going to regurgitate it, suffice to say that I felt strong throughout the race and was still pretty fresh at the end. Promising signs for the Half in two weeks and longer term for bringing down my 5k pr this year once I start concentrating on training for the faster stuff...
On top of that having a great time just hanging out with Sophie while Mom and Emily are living it up down in Atlanta. We don't get much time together like this and I'm cherishing it!
Looking forward to seeing how it all shakes out in Salisbury tomorrow. Race season has started!
