Humid morning at 7 am for the start of the 5k challenge.
Started with the 19min group as have become too fast to start off at 20mins. A PB of 19:18 is why.
Group included Blue Dog, Luke Skyrunner(pushing Ned in pram), O Runner and Horrie.
O runner looked in PB form as he lead me for about 1.5ks.
Blue Dog before the start set his Garmin virtual pacer at a time of 18:52.
I thought that was good as all I have to do is sit on his tail and I get a PB if he keeps up to the watch pace.
Blue Dog flashed away at the start and kept a steady 30metre distance between the rest of the group for the next 4ks.
I didn't see any of the 5k markers except the 4k but forgot to look at my watch for the time.
I noted Blue Dog slowing around the 3.8-4k mark and saw my chance to get closer to him.
With about a 300 metres to go I went past him and finished in a PB of 19:03. A PB by 15 seconds. Very happy with that.
Was passed with about 500metres to go by Luke Skyrunner with pram. The man is fit.
After catching breath and chatting with other CR's we did a slow jog back to the start for 5ks in 27:30.
I like to chase at the end of a race so am best not leading. Thanks to Blue Dog for the good pacing, he did 19:08 for a PB. And Horrie did another PB 19:30.
