5 km PR - 26:49

On Saturday I did the Abbotsford Run For Justice 5 km and got another personal record.

Wasn't going to do any more 5 km races, but this one had three things going for it:
1. location - start line was a three minute drive from my place
2. start time - 10 a.m. allows for a bacon 'n egg breaky with coffee without having to get up at the crack of morning
3. justice - no idea about the specifics but who wouldn't want to support something like that?

I've discovered a formula for running a good race:

Do the first half slower than you think you should,
so you can do the second half faster than you thought you could.

This actually works. And it sounds good.
