This was the second Tipitina's Rhythm & Blues 5K road race--both for the city and for me. Like last year, this was my first race of the season and I am officially re-committed!

I love racing for the motivation to always be improving my running form, speed and balanced strength & health.

Last night, I finished the 3.1 miles with almost the exact same time as the same race last year. My official published time was 25:41, though my watch said 25:12. I'll stick to the latter.
