4th Place Overall at the Fall River Salvation Army 5K

th

Yesterday morning it was a last minute decision to head down to Fall River, Massachusetts for the Fall River Salvation Army 5K. The race was a bargain price of $20 inclusive of a tee-shirt and the race kicked off at 10AM in an industrial park in Fall River. The race kicked off right on time and runners made their way out onto the course. Rather early into the race I recognized I was running pretty strong and was toward the head of the pack so it was all about maintaining a good pace through the rest of the race.

The course was nicely marked and patrolled by members of the Fall River Auxiliary Police Department and the Fall River Fire Department. Volunteers were at the miles markers and a water stop was perfectly placed midway through the race.

For a course in an industrial park there were a nice amount of hills mixed into the race and the course was certainly not of the flat variety. On the final stretch of the race it was clear that I was in fourth place and I needed to kick it in to ensure a solid finish. Fortunately, I was able to maintain a nice finishing pace and did indeed come in fourth overall with a time of 23:26, good for 7:34/miles.
