It was hot, muggy, and disgusting out – but it didn’t matter for Rob – as he came away with a first place showing in the Garfield YMCA 5k.
In the words of Rob “Brutal out there – 80 degrees, 84% humidity. Very controlled but fast first two miles, then hit the hills the last mile and settled a little. Ended up with splits of 5:40 (with a long downhill in the middle) and 5:50 (flat/rolling) before settling for the WIN Mentally let it slide to a 6:09 on the hilly portion. Kicked back down to 5:30 pace for the last .12 miles on my Garmin. 6.8 on the day.”
18:18 for first place. Boom. That’s how you run a race in heat!
Unfortunately, there are no results and no decent photos! Maybe next time. You can also read Rob’s post about his #runstreak and all things running here.
