Dash for the Dome 5K

Another frigid, blustery, bone chilling race in WNY. What else should I have expected. I was definitely wooed into this race by the false advertising of the race organizers (see calm winter day picture to right). Instead we had blowing and drifting snow, 25+mph winds. Wahhhh! I wasn't setting any personal records here today. Otherwise, well organized and a nice party in the warm Botanical Gardens afterwards. Nothing says fitness like beer and hotdogs!

Mileage: 3.13
Time/Pace: 22:57/7:20
Avg HR/Max HR: 184/201 (way too high!)
I finished 2nd in my age group, 10th overall (out of 155). I won 4 guest passes to visit the Gardens, who's in?!?
Oh, it's my birthday today too. (Shameless plug for many online blogger birthday wishes!)

  1. No one was going to break any records with today's ran a really good 5K time regardless! Congrats on the age group award!

    And of course...Happy Birthday! You're a braver person than I am...I tend to be rather quiet about my birthday nowadays, on Bloggerland and elsewhere. Well, as long as you're still upright and able to run, all is well, right?
