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 :)
