Progress... Yesterday was the upteenth annual Mastodon Stomp 5k. It's run on and around the campus of IPFW. Not really a course to set a PR on as there are a lot of twists and turns. Yesterdays temps at race time were almost near the high of the day at 83 degrees. My warm-up went well and legs seem to be out of the funk they were in the the previous couple of days. First mile was a bit fast (which it always is) and the rest of the race went about as planned. I ended up with a 19:24 which is just about what I thought I could do right now. Of course I had Rick's prediction dancing in my head after my 5:55 first mile, but then came to my senses as the race progressed. The heat became a factor toward the end as I was just melting not being used to the temps... Another 7 weeks until my next 5k and the goal is to be in the 17's by then. A shot below post race of myself and some of the top masters in the area.
