splits: 5:43, 6:37!, 6:42 (for 1.1)

not the splits i predicted yesterday, but this race was much hillier than i expected. on paper, the course looked like it would be challenging and rolly, but nothing too crazy. i expected and was prepared for the ~0.6 mile uphill stretch in the middle, but i was not prepared for the sustained uphill over the last half mile of the race + a cruel finishing stretch. 

that said, i feel like this was a good effort, and probably my strongest race so far in atlanta. the hills slowed me down, but i didn't completely lose power and splat to the ground as has been my style over the past year. i recovered quickly on the downhill sections and felt relatively strong throughout the race. today let me know i'm probably not in sub-18 shape yet, but i think i'm getting closer. my next opportunity to gauge will be atlanta's finest 5k in two weeks.

JAJA holding down 4 consecutive spots on the race reports list right now. When was the last time that happened? Ever? I hope no one run 18:40 today and ruins it.
