so let's make the most of this beautiful day

So after months of running on a treadmill, I finally had the opportunity to run another 5 mile road race, and the weather was PERFECT!!! After the past week with temperatures dropping into the negative single digits overnight, March 5th came in with 40+ degree weather, and a light wind out of the northwest. Perfect weather for an early season run. While I didn't get an overall personal best, I did take 7 minutes off my last outdoor 5 mile run time (from about 3 months ago) of 49:07. I'm not quite sure what my official time will be for today yet, but I clocked myself at 42:00.

UPDATE: Official posted time from the run was 42:03. Not too shabby if I do say so myself.
