This was a small race with about 165 runners. I felt pretty good running but I was favoring my left knee. Oh well it came around and did well even though one old guy got passed me at the beginning and I was never able to recover. Next 5k is in 10 days and I'll do better now that I know my knee is good to go! Second Place in AG is good!
