Race Report: Run & Walk For Success 5K 2018

Posted in Race Reports

The Run & Walk for Success is a local charity race benefitting the local Boys and Girls Clubs of Volusia and Flagler Counties. West Volusia Runners had a small group in attendance.

Training & Goals
I've been building my mileage back up after an Achilles injury in August. I still have discomfort but it is greatly mitigated with various measures I've been taking since visiting the podiatrist. My endurance seems to have taken a big hit as well and I'm struggling to get back up to my regular albeit slow pace. No goal in mind for this race, what's new.

Race Day: September 29, 2018
The race took place at the LPGA International in Daytona Beach. I did day-of packet pickup with no issues. The race started late, at 8:30AM, with a temperature of 82°F, 89% humidity, and mostly sunny skies.

Mile 1: 11:28
The course was a simple out-and-back on residential and LPGA streets.

Mile 2: 11:45

Mile 3+: 12:10, 1:43
