Cold with light breeze. shorts, compression sleeves, lifa & ss shirt, buff & gloves. Peter nudged me to the front line while waiting to start and had the inside going up the hill so quickly pulled in front and was first to the top of the hill, but then quickly passed by a pack of three speedy guys and then John A passed me by the zoo, but that was it. Held the rest of the course about 20s behind John and probably the same back to any chasers. Gained back about 3s near the end to finish 17s back of John in 5th place, 5s faster than 2 weeks ago and 4s off my personal 5k PR.
R heel a little tight, will make sure to stretch periodically through the day.
