First time doing Draper Days 5k since 2012, the day everything finally unraveled for me. I was kind of scared to return.

The start was a giant mess. They had the push-wheelchair runners lineup at the front but then didn't let them go early. Which is just...obviously a bad idea for everyone. Then they left up two road block which everyone had to go around. This mess probably only cost me about 3-5 seconds, but it was all quite avoidable.

Started off running behind Dennis Simonaitis, just like the good old days, and we slowly gained on the lead women (Nan+Sariah) as well as Sasha. Caught up to them right at the mile marker (which was way off). Then I pulled ahead of them all, with only Sasha coming with me. We ran side by side until about the 2 mile mark when we started climbing and I used my Atlanta legs to pull away.

With about 1k to go, Nan caught back up to me and encouraged me to keep up so I ran behind her the rest of the way. Very surprised to see 17:0x as I crossed the line, as my mile split was 5:42 and I felt like I was slowing down. Riley's garmin said the course was legit, so I'll take it. Best road 5k since early 2012 and only 10 seconds slower than what I did on a track at sea level.

I finished 13 seconds and 1 spot ahead of Dennis. In 2011 we fininished 6-7 in this race with about the same spread but 1 minute faster.

So now the race results have me as 17:07 (they changed for some reason) and they give everyone but me a 2-3 second difference between gun time and chip time. I definitely had to wait 3 seconds before I crossed the start line. That's what I get for not stopping my watch when I crossed the line.
