6/23/01 Swede Days 5K

To the little town of Rochester for this 5K race put on by Thurston County Parks and Recreation. My last four 5Ks have all gotten progressively faster and in the last one I broke the 20 minute mark. I hope I can do even better today. Nice to see Isaac here. Good weather for running. Horrible bathroom in the old Swede Hall.
Start - Good small group of runners.
Mile 1 - Flat course, should be a good time.
Mile 3.1 - Disappointed with time. I expected to be faster. Nice to get a ribbon though. Pain in foot is really bad and frustrating. Takes forever to loosen up and I am hobbling around most mornings.
21st of 58, first in age group ribbon
