Just finished my first Craicfest 5K! The race is part of a 5k series in Cambridge and a total blast! I ran the Yulefest back in December and decided to give this one a try instead of my usual St. Patty’s 5k in Davis Square. This year I roped my cousin Ren into running with me.
I decided to use the 5k as an interval of sorts with a 5 mile run to the start and 5 mile run home for a total of 13. I have a half marathon in a couple of weeks, so I have been working back up to longer distances on the weekends since Houston and the start of PT. My foot still bugged me, but I was very happy with the run(s) overall! Here are my times for each of the 3 legs.
5 Mile Jog to the Start: 7:45pace
5k time: 22:04 with a 7:06 pace
5 Mile Jog Home (or rather my iced coffee spot): 8:19pace
Ren was a great running buddy and also got a new PR of 22:10! Definitely signing up for this race again.
Happy St. Patty’s Day week!
