One week out from Rec Plex, Nikki and I traveled over to St. Louis to visit her parents and to do another race, this time a 5k. Advertised as a fast course, it was predominately a slightly downhill run. After my last 5k time of 24:00, I was determined to do slightly better! My goal was to break 20 minutes…Once out on the run, things felt good. Sure there were people passing me that never could have in the past, but I was feeling decent and thought I had a pretty good shot of breaking 20 minutes. First mile I ran about 6 minutes even, next I went about 6:30, and the final mile was about 7 minutes. Final time of 19:59!
