I don't normally carry my handheld water bottle during a 5K but I decided to today since I thought I may need extra water with the sore throat. I am so glad I carried it because I drank quite a bit. My plan was to just run by feel. I felt good enough to keep between 8:15-8:30 pace so I went with it. I spent a lot of time playing leap frog with another runner who just so happened to be wearing a Cleveland Marathon shirt. In the end she finished before me and that was fine by me since I managed to pass another girl just strides before the finish line. I was happy with my time and the fact that I didn't go out to fast. All in all, it was a successful run and I managed to place 3rd in my age group. Not bad, not bad at all.
