Lost Dog 5K Race Results

Today I ran the Lost Dog 5K put on by the White Rock Racing Group.  This was the first time I have run in colder weather and it was downright chilly!  At race time it was 46 degrees and the long compression pants and long sleeve compression shirt helped out tremendously!

The course itself for those of us running the 5K was straight and simple enough.  Down one street for a little over 1.6 miles and back for a total of 3.1 miles while those running the 20K race kept going.

I had two goals again for this race: the first was to again finish without stopping to walk at anytime.  The second was to keep at least a pace of at least 11:00 minutes per mile. I am happy to say I accomplished both of my goals!

Here is the map of the event with my split times:

So This is taken from my MapMyFitness Page.

So how did I do?  Well, I won my age division, my weight division and placed 5 in the Masters division.  (And to be honest, it was a smaller race, but I am not trying to downplay my results; just being forthright with the facts.)

I am ranked 5th in this image.
I have to admit that I was really happy with my time in this race.  I actually bested my time from the Plano Balloon Festival 5K by a full one minute and twenty-three (1:23) seconds!  Yes, a new personal best!

So overall it was a great race for my second 5K race ever.  A new personal best time, a first place finish and a fifth place in the masters division, and even a trophy!

It's a small trophy, but still, not bad for my second 5K!

I'm not sure what my next race will be, but as soon as I know, I'll post it on here.  Until then, have a great rest of the day!
