On September 16th I ran in the 2nd race of the Track Shack fanatic series, the Battle of the Bands 5k. The race took place in the city of Casselberry, with a different route than last year's race.
This was a busy day in the Chalmers' household ... Mason had a soccer game and soccer photos at 9am. There wasn't much time after the race for me to enjoy the festivities but I did manage to try 2 of the craft beers that were available at the beer tent. The bands played awesome and made the race that much more enjoyable.
I ran in new-to-me New Balance racing flats, but didn't beat my time from August's 5k. The 1500v3 were comfortable and made me feel like I was racing fast.
I still managed to finish 2nd in my age group with a time of 22:43 minutes (7:18 min/mile pace).
