So the Friday before the tri, Megan talked me into doing Captain Midnight’s Run for CF 5k as a tune up for her and I hadn’t raced a 5k since Midnight Madness in July. So we ventured up to Ames on a very sticky Friday evening. This was the first race I ran in just my shorts and a sports bra. Shout out to Oiselle on the Stride shorts and Verrazano bra!
The race was a lot of fun. Megan paced me to a PR in the 5k. I finally cut my time under that magical 30 minute mark. Speed work and training for IMT Des Moines has definitely been making me speedy. Plus, having someone that’s faster than you pace you at an easy pace for them helps.
