Darden Cares 5K

"I hate you garmin! I would be celebrating a 5K PR
if you didn't tell me I only ran 2.98 miles. But it is a 2.98 PR - 21:30!" 
Leah Connor's post on Facebook ;-)

Omg loved that race this morning. Kinda annoyed it was only 2.98 miles but I actually practiced racing and had so much fun doing it. I think I'm finally learning how to race this shorter distance after 4 years and dozens of attempts. Early on I passed a younger woman and then she passed me, but then i passed her again on a downhill and opened up my lead on the final uphill. And along the way i passed quite a few guys as well ... All much younger than me! Whoo hoo! 21:30 which even though the course was shorter than yesterday, I ran much faster than. Of course the pace today is only slightly faster than my cherry blossom ten mile pace (7:15). I hate you Cville hills! Still it's good to run 7:13 pace for almost 3 miles the day after running 7:20 pace for 3.1 miles!
