Fairview Alumni 5K

Exercise: After a short (less than 0.5 miles) warmup, I did the Fairview Alumni 5K in Fairview, AL. It is a certified course that ends with on the High School track making about 3/4 of a loop. Hamstring was still very sore... Finished 1st overall in 19:35 - second place was over 3 minutes behind, so I really didn't have anyone pushing me. The 4 5K races with a 50 mile radius of Huntsville today surely thinned out the participation at each event.

Total mileage for week: 3.5
