This evening at 6:20 I run the Cigna Elliot 5K for the 6th staight year.  I'm not very fast at these kind of things but I'm going to try something a little different this year.  I read about this in a few different publications.  Instead of pushing hard right from the get go. I'm going to pace it a little easier for the first mile and then startpushing harder.  I'm hoping I can keep more oxygen in my blood for longer and maybe be overall a little faster.  Lets see how it go's....

I sucked!  My calf that I strained a month ago started tightening up pretty good after the 2nd mile.  You can tell how much it slowed me down if you look on my endo mondo at my lap times for the last 1 and .12 miles.  The last .12 took me almost 3 minutes!

My net time was 30 mins 8secs.  But as far as my strategy went I think it worked.  I felt alot less anaerobic for the 2nd half of the race.
The Course and my tracks

Once again there was almost 6000 runners

I had a nice view for a liitle bit during the race until I decided it was time to pass Miss NH with her Miss America Sash on.  I had to take a pic with my camera while running... Haha.

also noteworthy I came across the finish line at the same time as our US Senator. Kelly Ayotte
