DINO at SouthWestway Park

Very nice morning for a run yesterday. The course at SouthWestway Park, a 5k loop, is mostly flat for the first couple miles then has one pretty tough hill around two miles. I kept my cool at the start and didn’t burn out right away. I ran hard in the flats and took it easy getting up that hill. I was running behind a younger guy who really flew up the hills. I would catch up to him in the flats. By the third loop I though maybe he would finally slow down going up that hill. Wrong! The last time he went up the hills like he had been shot out of a cannon. I ran a good race though and I felt strong in the last lap, I even managed to pass a couple others in the last couple miles. I missed the medals, finishing 4th in my age group, no door prizes either, but still a good day on the trails.
