3W Races Spring Fling

3W Races produced another terrific race on Saturday.  It was a smaller field event, but supported every bit as well as a 10,000+ person event with sponsors on hand, volunteers at water stations and a fun awards ceremony.  I originally signed up for the 5K, but the great weather and enthusiasm made me cruise right past the 5K turn around point.

As a result my pacing was a bit off.  My mile splits were 8:59, 9:07, 10:02, 9:54, 10:58, and 10:18.  I ended up finishing in 1:00:47 which just happened to be 4th in my age group.  If I would have known how close I was, I might have looked for the extra gear a little sooner.

Overall it was a fun event.  I won’t be in town for the couple of races, but 3W has some great event planned including the Westminster Women’s Classic in May and the Let Freedom Run in July.
