5K races are just not my race. I am just grateful to have finished in the top ten female finishers. My stride work really helped me at the end of the race to overtake several runners at the finish line.

Nice job. Funny how your 10k pace from earlier this year is faster than your 5k pace. Some people are like that :)

My preferred race is the half-marathon. I hit my stride around mile 3 or 4. I've signed up for several more 5K's to see if I can improve at this shorter distance.
