The weather was better than I expected (above freezing), but the hills were worse. This morning’s Etowah Soccer 5K was a hilly run, slowing me down to below my normal 10K pace. I enjoyed the challenge, but didn’t like ending with my record worst time. Oh well, chalk it up as a training run. The entertainment value was good, though: the comedy of hearing so many of the Etowah High students cross the finish shouting “those hills were killer!”
It was close to home and for a great cause, so I’ll consider it a challenge for next year.
