    1:38:15 - Strange time to shoot for... backstory? Is it just because you wanted to average 7:30? good job on the PR though.

    Yea, I wanted to average 7:30. I usually keep track of my pace with my Garmin watch. I charged it up the night before, and at 5am right before I left for the race, I switched on the watch and it beeped low battery! I ran with my old Timex, but I did the math wrong in my head. By the time I realized that I was behind, I wasn't able to make up the time.

    The Garmin watch charges fine with the wall plug, but I charged it on a USB port on my computer. There are reports of the watch draining the battery if charged via a computer. Lesson learned.

    Sounds like you'll definitely crush it next time then. I actually don't like racing with a watch because then I feel pressured to hit certain split times and panic a bit if I'm off. But I do like seeing the time at the finish so I can see how I did before getting the official results.

    + 129 including a nice new 5-mile PR of 27:16. Still not in sub-16:00 5K shape but I feel like I'm close! Just need a few more solid weeks of training!
