Louisville St. Patrick’s Day 5K
Finish Time: 21:20
Overall Place: 19th
Division Place: 4th
Race Recap By Michael Homula
There was a good turnout of 298 runners given the colder temps. The course was mostly flat but there were some challenging hill sections that didn’t look like much but were sneaky tough and some 10-15 mph headwinds made the course tougher than it might normally have been.
I did not have as good a day as planned thanks to coming down with a nasty flu 2 weeks ago and missing several important training runs (those tempo/lactate threshold runs are so important for 5k races).
I finished 18th overall and 4th in my age group with a time of 21:20 (20 seconds slower than my last race a month ago).
There is much work to get done in the next several weeks to get that time below 20:30.
As always, I am grateful to run as part of Ohio Team-ER and our outstanding group of sponsors.
