Last week I decide I would go home and run the Peeper 5K, after I had looked at last years results I thought I might have a good chance. I arrived at the race around 8 and immediatly saw Dan V. Jim Johnson and Chris Mahoney so I knew right from the start I needed to have a outstanding day to get those guys. We headed out to do the course for the warm up and saw a guy from NB (Dan) Jim recognized him form the Lowell meet a few weeks back. I was now looking at if I was to finsh top 3 I needed to beat one of these guys. As the gun went off it was myself,Dan(NB),Jim and Chris all together I knew I needed to try and hang on aslong as possible. We can through the mile under 5 and I started to fall back a couple steps(Never been out this fast)
When we hit the turn around they had about 5-10 seconds on me, I tried to rally back and see if I had anything to catch them. I could see them the whole way back but just couldn't close the gap. I ended up finishing 4th in 16:30 which going into the race I told myself that was the goal. Overall I was happy with the race, I am more excited with how this comeback is going very well I am hoping that I can sneak under 16mins by early June.
