Yiasou Greek Festival 5k

Yesterday Mason and I ran the Yiasou Greek Festival 5k.  I couldn't have asked for better racing conditions ... no humidity and temperatures in the high 60's made for a perfect day.

Baby joggers began 2 minutes before the rest of the racers and I saw a few women with their babies jet off ahead of us.  I didn't try to catch up with them; instead I focused on keeping a good pace with Mason.

mile 1 - 7:38
mile 2 - 7:39
mile 3 - 7:23

average pace - 7:32 min/mile, total time 23:24 minutes

This was by far our fastest 5k time together.  I felt strong out on the course and am thankful that it was relatively flat. 

We have at least 2 more 5ks to race together this year, but I'm doubtful we'll knock out another race THIS fast.  I'm so lucky to have such a dedicated racing partner :)
