Gator Bait 5K
For the first time, I ran the Gator Bait 5K Trail Run at Huntsville State Park this morning. Very hot and especially humid. I felt sluggish and unmotivated and my finish time of 50:36 (50:23 chip time) showed it. With all the rain lately, the trails were muddy in spots, but I managed to not to trip over a root and slip in the mud. It was probably a new 5K PW (personal worst) for me. However, I won first in the 70-74 age group (I was the only one). I did beat the guy in the 75-79 age group. My next race is the Polish Pickle 5K on Saturday. It will be my 20th straight year for running this race.
