1st 5k of the year

Today was the Aids Walk and 5k run in Albany. My time was 30:48, with a photo finish sprint against another runner in the last 20 feet. Shannon finished 32:31; her first time running 5k this year. It was a beautiful day in Washington Park and the course was 2 laps around/in the park. Both my knees were hurting by the 2nd lap, but I managed to keep on pace.

I ended up 44th overall (though I maintain I won that sprint-off) out of 88, and 4th in the 30-34 male age group. Shannon was also 4th in her 5 year age group. Awesome!

Next week is another 5k and in 3 weeks the duathlon!
