First Day 5k

Ran the First Day 5k in Midlothian Va today.  Was a really good race.  Mom and Dad came up yesterday and we did the Richmond tourist thing.  We ate dinner and went to bed way before the ball dropped.  We got to the race really early but killed the time chatting in the car.  I haven't run a 5k since my first ever race, so I was kind of excited to set a new PR.  The weather was perfect at a cloudy 55 degrees with only a slight breeze.

The course was out and back through a neighborhood and was mostly flat.  I ran at about 90% and finished in 22:50 for a 8 minute PR which would have been good for 3rd in my age group, but I was signed up for another age group.  Mom and Dad both finished in 37 and had a great race. 

Rest of the day was spent relaxing with the family.  This has to be the best vacation yet!
