2014 Carlsbad 5000 Experience

Carlsbad 5000









This is a very well organized event. The course is fast but challenging. I've run this race a few times in the past and have always enjoyed the experience. 

Here is a recap from The Carlsbad 5000:

I have to say that running a race in your hometown is always an advantage. Fortunately, I didn't have a lot of planning to do for this race. I relied on my normal warm-up routine. I started with my jog and running drills to loosen my body up. I was able to stay relaxed for the start. My goal for this race was to run a comfortable fast race. I decided not to wear a watch for this race because I simply wanted to listen to my body while I was running. I felt the watch would have interfered with me running a strong race. 

I made my way over to the start line. The race started on time. I started running and was feeling really good. I got to the first mile marker and was running at a 5:30 pace. I approached the second mile marker and clock read 12 and some change. I stared to push my pace a bit then I started to feel my left hamstring starting to tighten up. I decided at that point to go on cruise control. I finished at 18:46. I cut almost 2 minutes from the race the year before. I completed my goal and was very happy with my finish. 

Runners should always set goals and those goals should be obtainable. I never set goals to break personal best. My goals are to finish strong without injuring myself. I have  great success with my running by setting goals. I challenge all runners to set goals for themselves. By setting goals, you will notice improvements and can also become proud of your accomplishments!
