Merrell 5K Summer Series # 3This race was on Thursday evening at the Monon Center in Carmel, same place as the first two. Our Indy Women's Fall Training group did all 3 of these as part of our training, and they were all a lot of fun. The course is really pretty, and has some slight elevation changes to make it challenging.
|Close, but no PR|
Thursday evening it was in the low 60's, and I thought if I had any chance of a new PR it would be at this race. As it turns out, I came really close. I might have done it if it had been chip start & finish, instead of gun start & chip finish. I also might have done it if I hadn't slowed down around mile 2, thinking I could push more at the end if I gave myself a slight break in the middle. More on that later.
