RACE - [4:45 - 5:02 - 4:56 - 5:01 - 5:03 - 5:02 - 5:14 - 5:30 5:13 - 2:02] - [AVG:5:06]
T:40
NOTES: Was not feeling good leading into the race. Physically was just breaking down. my Achilles was so tight on the warm up I wasn't sure I was going to be able to finish. After switching into my racing flats and doing a few strides it felt good! My plan was just to go out really slow and bring it home towards the end. But as you can see that didn't happen. I was excited to be feeling somewhat descent and just went for it. 1st and 2nd place pulled away early and I lead a chase group of 3(including myself). 2nd place died off and I lead the chase group into a fight for 2nd place. From there on out everyone just sat on me.. until mile 6.5 they got a pretty good gap on me and i couldn't close. coming up on the final few miles was a collection of rough rolling hills ( hints the 5:30 8th mile, I wasn't dying it was just that hard of a mile). i ending up holding onto 4th place and taking home a $1500 pay day. Well worth the trip to East Texas. Oh how I've missed east Texas.
