Today myself,Haley,Hammett and George Adams headed over to Manchester for the Cigna 5k. After last year we decided that we would much rather be there early then rush. We arrived at 4:15. Around 5:30 we went out on the warm up with a crew of the CMS guys. Mike Q. Dave Q. Scott Clark Tim Cox. After a nice 2m warm up we headed separate ways to get ready. As the race started I was 3 rows back but had positioned myself right behind Mike Q, After the first 200 and the crowd spread out a bit I was able to find Mike once again and tucked in right behind him. We can threw the mile in 505-506 and felt pretty relaxed at this point I pulled up next to Mike and we started to move up. I felt really smooth and comfortable (the mileage paying off) Not sure the time at 2 as i decided to not wear a watch but there are normally clocks on the course, At about 2.5 we hit the last little dip in the course and Mike started to close and opened a gap that I wasn't able to cover the move. Overall I was really happy I know I am getting stronger and a couple more weeks I think that I will be able to cover late moves better.

Results - 16:13 PR
23rd overall
