My third trip to Hollis Fast 5k was surprisingly fast… yes, even more than expected!! Changed into Whirlaway uniform in the parking garage of new job at U.S. Bankruptcy Court, 4th day on the job. It may be temporary, but enjoy it! Based on 2 mile time trial previous week at GSRT with Amber Cullen Ferreira, I hoped for 6:45 pace at Hollis… but that Hollis course was blazing fast and my pace ended up being 6:19!!
The race drew nearly 1400 runners on a Thursday night, weather was ideal. Chugged a huge diet Mtn Dew for caffeine and saw tons of wonderful friends and teammates. But really, my time was unreal… I’ll cherish it for a long time.
Whirlaway women swept Open, Masters and Seniors and Whirlaway Men’s Masters and Seniors got second!!
19:34 6:19 I don’t know that I can call it a 5K PR due to the course advantage, but it is a “Hollis PR!”
