The only good things to say about the weather recently is that it hasn't been too hot. I'm not a big fan of heat when I'm running and it's actually been very comfortable running temperatures lately. I had hopes that the cooler temps on Wednesday evening would help me run a fast time around Back Cove in the Weekly Back Cove 5k race. I had a good warm-up of about a mile and a half and bumped into a bunch of Trail Monsters including Lily, Jeff, Randy, Blaine and Alan as well as a few other friends.
I didn't wear my Garmin so I don't know what my splits were but I suspect I followed my usual pattern of setting off a little too fast and finishing a little too slow. I tried to pace off of Randy for a while but he either sped up or I slowed down, I suspect the latter. He ended up running the race that I wanted to coming in just under 19:30. I was happy with my time of 19:46, not my best time at Back Cove but still pretty good.
distance: 3.1 miles
