Hobby Jogging: 2/20/10 - Greenville, NC - Kappa Delta 5k for Kids

Decided to do this race last minute as I needed a tempo run this week and it was only $15. Was a chilly day, but sunny. Wore my toboggan, gloves, and shades, but no compression shorts today. Got out behind my buddy Nic Boerio again and he was killing the first mile (4:56). Had to go into my own pace early, which was still a shade too fast. Hit the mile in 5:28 before the all uphill second mile. I was once again in no mans land as I had opened up a gap on the 3rd runner. Running up the hill on 5th street was tough and once I hit the 2 mile in about 11:27-8, I started to pick it up. Got faster and faster on the last mile before hitting the last hill with 400 to go at 16:30. Sprinted the last hill then cruised through the last 250 meters or so to hit 17:53. First time under 18 since 1997!
