Three of the amis and I ran a 5k yesterday morning, as I mentioned Friday! It was through the Cornell plantations, which I am embarrassed to say I haven’t run through more during my time here at Cornell. The course was easier than the typical hilly Westchester XC courses, but it was still hilly and quite windy (it started snowing 10 minutes after I finished). Quite pretty nevertheless.
On an exciting note, Ami L came in second with a time of ~19:15. I was off my PR by 8-10 seconds with a time of ~26:12, but for spraining my MCL about three months ago and not running an official 5k (or any other race) in over two years, I was quite happy. I also managed to win a pair of promotional sunglasses (as did le copain who finished two places in front of me (and hadn’t run whatsoever in an entire year)).
All in all it was a
good great morning had by all.
^^^Actually all looking pretty swell post 5k. (That might be a first). Also, HGXC representing!! (:
^^^Matching promotional sunglasses. Perhaps they’ll make an appearance at Slope Day?
