After some drinks at one of my other favorite spots @ Louis 649; I wasn't sure if I was going to do the race. It was a tough weekend due to a funeral and the impending hazy/humid weather. Since I could barely concentrate and get any sleep on saturday nite, I decided that I have to get my arse out in the park and do something. Moreover, I didn't want my recent track workouts or $25 go to waste and in addition to that, I sought for some redemption from last year's race.
Although I was able to hit two sub 6 miles, I was unable to hold on to that pace on mile 3. Going out way too fast in the beginning really made me crash and burn this time around. Maybe if I went 4-5 seconds slower, things may turn out differently. Nevertheless, it was 9 seconds off from my PR and was able to put in 6 more miles afterwards.
