Race Day - The Great New Years Eve Race

Today is The Great New Years Eve Race.  The distance is 5k and the location is in Stow, Ohio.  This will be 4th time I have said this will be my last race of the year.  I have a feeling I may be right on this one.  I am not a huge fan of 5K's.  I have only done one once before (Pigskin Classic), but I couldn't get comfortable and establish a rhythm that I can on longer runs.  I am hoping it was the weather that day as the conditions were not favorable.  Snow, 22 mph head wind off Lake Erie, and a long climb at the finish that led to a disappointing time of 25:51.  I really have not expectations for today.  This week has been the first in roughly a month that I have ran with "intent" and haven't had much speed.  So, I am going in too today's race to have fun and reflect on the past year.  I came up with an idea that I would give a pre-race report much like this before each event.  Hope you enjoy!!
