The 5K, Not The Marathon, Is The Ideal Race

But, but ... I run a 5K every time I run.
Bay Village 5 Mile Run on Independence Day. Sometimes I run that, last year I was in Topsail.
My father ran that race often, and so I am inspired to hit it again this year. It's not my favorite run, longer than a 5K is less a "fun run" and more like a real race. The course is flat and boring. Bay Village architecture is boring, just handsome, little houses all in a row. Quite often it is hot and very hot.
But, you know. Dad.
Distance: 3.1 miles
Avg Pace: 7:11
Route: Forest Hill Loop
Climate: hot & overcast
Weight: 165.5 lbs.
Big, fast, sweaty run. Astonished to see I really didn't gain any additional weight at the conference. I don't think I ate so many french fries in my life.
I miss the mountains. I am glad to be home.
