And maybe it helped!
I ran another race before doing a race report for the donut dash.
It is a janky little run that I've done for the past 3 years (WOW!). NARAL's Run For Your Rights. It is a totally low key 5k run around Greenlake. No timing chips, lots of dogs and strollers. Usually really hilarious protesters.
It is timed by a stopwatch but according to my Garmin (and the stop watch yielder) it was a PR at 27:52.
Maybe I'll do a race report before Issaquah…but maybe not!
