A beautiful morning for a 5K race.

This is one of our favorites, however it is the last year for it. This race raised funds for Brain Tumor research and is memory of George Kamberos, his daughters have put on this race for 10 years! A great cause and great race.
Goal today was 21:something and to take home some hardware.

I ran the first mile exactly where I wanted, 6:48. Now I have to keep this pace and save some for the hill at mile 2.25.
2nd mile feels a little long, am I conserving too much? 7:13...... Uh - Oh!!
I make it up the hill with no problems and now to turn it on and finish up. I pass a guy that usually beats me and I still feel pretty good. It feels as if I'm back on pace....
Mile 3.1 ~ 7:36.... for a finish time of 21:39. I ran a 21:34 last year.... hmmmm! I'll take it on a hot morning and coming off a Half on May 20th and a 10K last weekend, both of which I PR'd.

Nice race! Way to go, mrbill! (and mrsbill too!) That's a nice string of PRs and near-PRs, including your last two races.

Wow, those are a lot of bugs crawling outside. Yuck.

Why is this the last year for George's Jog? Sounds like it was a favorite of yours... you must be sad to see it go.
