This was a four day work week and I was able to get up early and run on each of those days. That’s going to be more and more important as we head towards the dog days of summer. This week started out great with temps around 60 on Tuesday. Each day after that, I swear, the temp went up exactly 5 degrees, so it was 75 this morning. I won’t be surprised if it’s 80 and 85 the next two mornings.

I was finally able to find the results from a local 4th of July 5 mile race that I’ve run in the past. It looks like my 31:22 from last year would have placed me 19th overall and 3rd in my age group, rather than last year’s 9th and 1st respectively. "Good thing" I didn't run this year.

While I was trying to find those results, I came across perhaps the most lopsided victory ever in a 5k. Chelle, it looks like this was a NYC race. Do you know anything about it?

Nothing too exciting on the running front today - just an easy 5 miles. That puts me at 40 for the week, with 1 day still remaining.

What an odd race. No, it's definitely not one run by our Road Runners Club. Most of the participants aren't even from New York, so I think it must be some kind of corporate team building event or something like that. Definitely lopsided on the men's side, but the women's times were all relatively slow.
