Apparently I am a very steady runner. The longer the distance the more competitive I am. This isn’t new. I was better in cross country than I was in Track. I don’t usually run 5ks. I’m really just getting warmed up at the 2-3 mile mark. But the Autism Speaks 5k is a good cause for which I am happy to support. I haven’t seen my official results yet but it looks like I was running in the low 8 minutes per mile. For 3.5 miles I think that kind of sucks, at least for me. I could run that in the 6s in High School. In fact I could run a 10k at a 6 something minute per mile. I’d love to get back down there, but then again I haven’t been at it that long. But here is what really struck me, my pace for today’s 5k was about the same as my pace for my 1/2 marathon. Even when I ran 20 miles (my current personal record) I lost less then a minute a mile and I slowed several times and jogged in place getting directions because I managed to get myself lost.
