DSE Rainbow Falls 5k

Good times with the DSE Runners! We had a break in the rain so I joined in the 5k fun at Golden Gate Park. My goal was to run comfortably hard and steady and not go out too fast. I wanted to try to do a progression, but there is a little bit of a hill there in the middle so it was varied. Once I could see the finish line I picked up the pace. I ended up finishing 21:18 5th place female behind a cute 10 yr. old girl & 1st AG. This was a good endurance session for the ORF 5k.
