I just ran 5.4 miles! Check it out on Strava: http://app.strava.com/activities/20143564
I wanted to do something between 2 and 3. Just to stretch my legs a bit. I wound up running a pretty respectable almost-5K.
I wanted to do closer to 5.5, although that was a bit of a stretch. I’ve run close to this distance before, but slower. It’s so hard to stay at 10’/mi.
This is the first really big race I’ve run. 7400 participants across 3 races: half marathon, quarter marathon, and 5K. I look forward to another big race. At the 10K distance :-)
My apologies for not posting this here earlier.
