Lee's Summit Hospital Night Flight 5K Report - June 25, 2004


Lee's Summit Night Flight 5K
Friday 6/25/04, 9:15 p.m.
Time: 20:36
Pace: 6:39
AG 45-49: 7th Place
Overall: 54th Place

This is the 2nd time I have ran this race. (Two years ago I ran it in 21:02.)It takes place at 9:15 p.m. so it is dark when the race begins. This was my first 5K race barefoot and my plan was not to hold back but run it flat out. Before the race, I got to talk to quite a few folks about barefoot running. Several folks had heard about Soles For Souls since this was a local race.

Not much to say about the race other than it was dark and I couldn't see where I was planting each foot. Didn't matter though, cause the asphalt was in good shape except over one bridge where the road was a bit course. Still, it was not bad and I kept my pace.

There were a lot of speedsters there, so I didn't get an AG award. However, I feel good about my effort since I ran it faster than 2 years ago with shoes on!
