Race Recap by Michael Homula
EnMotive Ohio and Ohio Challenge Series did another great job putting on the Sweetheart Run 5k today. For the second year in a row, the temperatures were frigid and it snowed much of the race which I suspect lessened the turnout (only 138 runners). Still an amazing race.
I finished in exactly 21:00 minutes (6:46 per mile pace).
I was 5th overall and 5th among males.
I finished 2nd in my age group.
So, a pretty good day. I wanted to run slightly faster (target was 20:30 for this race) but at about the 1 mile mark I felt my left shoe slipping and knew my laces came untied.
This was my first race as a member of Team-ER and I hope I did my new squad proud. I received a few compliments on the racing singlet (people loved the colors).
One note, I used a Boom Nutrition gel 30 minutes before the race. This is my first experience with their product (I used to use a competitor but have to commit to those committed to you) and the product rocks. Great taste, all natural, and I felt it kick in right about the starting gun. Great job, great product, I am now hooked.
