Not even a full week has passed and I am attempting another cross-country race, albeit a 5K.
The Golden West Classic is in Huntington Beach Central Park and put on by Golden West College. Most of the participants are junior college teams, but there is an open race for coaches and people who don’t have jobs (or can take a random break in the middle of the day).
I had a decent first mile (8:20), but then started to struggle in the ensuing heat, so opted to run/walk the last 2.1 miles in 21 minutes. Not bad for the first run post-50K.
