Cherry Creek Sneak - 5 Mile Race

Ran the Cherry Creek Sneak 5 Mile race in Denver on April 29, 2012.

Great day for the sneak, my first since 2009, but probably my 7th time to run it.  Lot of good memories, good weather and bad.  This years weather was great the best I ever remembered.

I ran a 34:54.  Not great but made my goal of sub 35.  I felt really good the whole race like I was running in a good zone, dialed back the pace a couple of times early but pushed it miles 4 and 5.  I really pushed the last half mile to break 35, but the posted me at 35:03 same ask clock time but there was an 8 second difference, so I'm logging it at 34:54.

10th in my age group but the field was diluted somewhat with the 10 mile race being added this year.

Pi Mile - 3.14159... 5k in Golden, CO

Ran the Pi Mile 5k (3.14159...)  in Golden on April 22, 2012.
Small race, about 160 runners, no frills but a fun little course from the Colorado School of Mines Track down Clear Creek Trail and back.  Flat fast course with only a little uphill at the end.

I ran a 21:21, which was about where I thought I'd be given my 3 mile tempo runs, was hoping for a good day and a sub 21 but it was a fun race.  I did win my age group ( by 13 minutes which means the next guy pretty much walked it), top 10 though with a lot of college kids running it.
