A PR woohoo!

This Saturday I ran in the Oceanfront Jaycees 3rd annual Cinco de Mayo 5k with two dear friends from DC. We ventured out bright and early to drive to the Oceanfront of Virginia Beach. We easily found parking and grabbed a bottle of water while we waited to start. The race started at 31st street park and headed south on the boardwalk until 9th street and then did a u-turn to head back to 31st street. I figured the street markers would be helpful for calculating progress.

The race started at 8:00 which seemed ok given it's early May. Boy was I wrong! After the turn to head back to the finish line, I really started to feel the heat of the sun. As the streets numbers increased, I had to slow my pace a little bit (I started at a pretty quick pace and got tired with the heat) I was really hoping to break 28 minutes but still managed to PR at 28.37 so I was pleased with that. In fact, we all PR'ed so our crew was happy!
