OK. So I ran the mile and the 5 mile at the Almond Blossom Run in Ripon, CA on 2/26/2011. Times:
1 mile = 7.28.3 15th overall and third (bronze) in my AG
5 mile = 44:01.5 116th overall and 11th in my AG
Previous best 5 mile was 48:59 on Thanksgiving of 2009 for the Turkey Trail Trot in SF.
Trimmed almost 5 minutes from my PR.
Splits were 8:18, 9:10, 8:55, 9:00, and 8:38. Started and finished pretty strong. Proud of that.
