Hard Knox Dogwood 5k 2018
Great day at the @knoxvilletrackclub Dogwood 5k in Knoxville via @hkpizza !! I finished the Dogwood 5k with a solid 6th overall in a time of 17:14 with no real warm-up due to bathroom lines and volunteering before the race. I was able to skate in a little 1/2 mile warm-up jog, but that was it.
I was running with the guy in 3rd place for about 3/4 of a mile, but then there were a few little hills which burned my legs up! I ended up getting passed by 2 people within the last mile, so clearly, I didn’t run the race in a smart manner. Ironically, it seemed like everyone had about the same time difference in their last mile was about 20 seconds slower than the previous ones in the Dogwood 5k!
I ran the Dogwood 5k in my Altra THE ONE shoes because they’re awesome! I also used my Garmin ForeRunner 230 in RUN mode to keep track of my mileage and pace with the GPS + GLONASS on for more accurate tracking.
Check out what other races I’ve got going on this year!
