Since the Star City Half  I've been fighting a lot of burn out and I wasn't really looking forward to the Jingle Bell 5k at all. I signed up for it because my employer has a wellness program that encouraged participation.

Never the less, on race day I went out and did what I had to do. My minimum goal for a 5k is just to finish it with an average pace in the 6's. I ended up with a more disciplined run than just finishing in the 6's, I was actually able to establish a consistent pace in the 6's and then finish with a strong kick in the 5's.
