I was hoping to get my race recap up today, but my Garmin isn't cooperating to get my data from it. I'm actually ok with my time - it's only 3 1/2 minutes slower than my PR, and since that PR was set on a race called "the Flat", and the Seattle course is decidedly not flat, I believe I did put forth a comparable, and my best, effort.
Next, moving on to 5ks, so need to bring back the speedwork! As mentioned last week, I have a 5k on NYE (likely my last chance to get a sub-30 for my 30 Before 30 list before my birthday - although I do think I can set a PR, I'm not sure about beating it by that much), another 5k in February, and the stair climb in January.
