Day 303 - Not every 5K is created equal
This morning I drove by two 5K races not more than 3 miles apart. One was right downtown Carmel, the other at a nearby Catholic church. Had no idea they were going on.
Probably just as well... I had no business racing today after the abysmal run yesterday.
It did remind me of a bit of good advice for new runners, though... if you have a choice between a community 5K and a Catholic 5K, remember that the community 5K is 3.1 miles, and the Catholic 5K is actually 3.4 miles ... they tack on an extra 10% for tithing.
Numbers: 1.4 miles, a rest-mile day.
