Default Stake 5k

Ran my first 5k race. Time was 21:53, by far the fastest I've ever run a 5k. Well it turns out the course wasn't quite 5k (stake event, whaddaya expect) but more like 2.95 miles. Even so, if you added another minute and a half to my time, it would still be my personal best on the road by at least two minutes. I know that's not very fast, but for a "clydesdale" like me, I was pretty pumped. It gives me more motivation to work on my speed.

Well done. That's a 7:25 pace. Not bad at all.

There was probably around 100 people. Up from 50 last year, the first year they put it on.

Thats a good turnout. We had one a couple of months ago just for our ward and had about 25 people show up. However, of those 25, there were exactly 4 runners, including my wife and I, a non-member spouse and a member of another ward in the stake that we invited (not SteelBlue or OrangeUte).
