Ashland Balloonfest 5KM

Saturday I ran the Ashland Balloonfest 5Km race. Well I did place 2nd of 8 in my age group, my time indicated I was way behind in race preparation. My time was 24:06 finishing 129th out of 327.
You could not ask for a nicer day being in the 70's, sun, clear. Several of the Loudonville CC runners were there as well as Terri Lemke. Here's there results: 20th Jace Wolford 19:18, 22nd and 2nd overall women Terri Lemke 19:22, and 137th Haley Young 24:24. Haley was out to beat me and I had hope she would have. I even told her my strategy. I had planned to go out fast the first mile. She was with me and faded a little on the inclines. Well I faded too as I was not able to hold 7:45 pace per mile. Oh well, I guess I need to work some more. Haley is training well and should be able to take me in a few weeks, but we shall see.

I will change my projection again for the 25,000 mile day back to July 20th. Oh yeah!
