Boston Trail 5k

     I have not raced since my dad passed away.  I wanted to start again, but I have not been running much.  Once a week, if that.  I signed myself about for two close races.  I figured if I paid, I would be more likely to go.
      The first race was the Boston Trail 5k.  I was not really in to it.  The weather was pretty nice and there were a lot of people there.  I started out like I had never quit running.  I burned out fast.  I figured this was going to be a 25 minute 5k.  Each mile was harder to finish and took more time.  I was not trying hard enough.   I finished in 33rd place with a time of 24:01.  That is better than 25, right?
      I really would have liked to do the half marathon at this race, but there was no way I could have done it in the shape I was in. 
I registered the week before, so I didn't get a shirt.
