There is a larger group than usual for the Boeing 5K, because today is actually Veterans’ Day and some people have the day off. It’s a prediction run, which I never do well on… though they do let us wear our watches.
It would probably be better if they only allowed people to make predictions that were somewhat faster than they could comfortably run, so that people could not do what I did and slow down quite a bit in order to hit as close to my time as possible.
I felt good (for once) on the run, but when I got to the last driveway before the final turn, I stopped to walk to come closer to my predicted time of 25:48, and ran 25:50 to achieve the Prediction Run “Win.”
