One Spring Foward 3 Steps Back

Starting Line


This post will be short and bitter.  Yesterday was the Fleetfeet Spring Foward 15k and the second race in the Rochester Runner of the Year series.  I had hoped to finish top 5 and to run about 5:45 pace on this fairly hilly course.  Neither of those things happened.

I finished 6th place over a minute behind the 5th place finisher, and ran 5:53 pace for a finishing time of 54:48.  Hopefully I get some good direction from my asthma/allergy specialist visit on Friday or the Flower City Half is going to be one long 13.1 miles.

Congrats to Chanse for running a great solo race and finishing 5th with a time of 53:32.  He told me that he thought I was right behind him the whole race, how nice if only it were true.
