It was a cold 19 degrees downtown but we had lots of sunshine. The roads were dry and with the sun shinning I was in a good mood for a race. The undulating course was a challenge for us runners and was not a course for a PR.
My goal for todays 5K race was to run it hard and use the finish time to calculate my training paces for the Cleveland 10K in May. I will use the famous F.I.R.S.T 12 week schedule to train for the race.
Now that I have a 5K race result I can start to train like a runner.
Race results: Chili Bowl Classic 5K
Oh, and I did try the veggie chili after the race. It was spicy with peppers and not bad tasting.
