Chilhowee 5K

Last Saturday I ran the Chilhowee Fair 5K for my third time with my fastest time ever.  Chilhowee is a tiny town where I went to school from Kindergarten to 12th grade.  I ended up winning second in my age/gender category (there were only 5 or 6) and 18th overall (out of like 48).  My cousin Whitney won first overall female and my sister Kristen got third overall female, but I did beat my other sister, two cousins, and my parents.

 I recently bought a GPS watch, mostly because I love maps and I was tired of trying to figure out how far I ran (or how long).  When I use it in NYC you can see popular paths of other runners and all the streets I could be running down.  I thought it was funny to see the route in Chilhowee... we basically ran the entire city (and a little bit out in to the country).

Also funny are my splits.  Mile 1 is pretty amazing for me... mile three a bit slow.  I haven't got the start slow, finish strong thing down yet.

  1. It's not the amount of competition that is important it is the quality, and I'd have to say the quality is pretty good at Chilhowee.


Comments are awesome!
