Clarendon Day 5K 2014

This past weekend, I ran the Clarendon Day 5K and finished with a PR of 28:01. This was a really nice, straight, mostly downhill, course through the heart of the Clarendon and Rosslyn neighborhoods of Arlington, VA. This was my first time running this course, and the opportunity to run down Wilson past so many places I used to frequent when I lived in Arlington was one I couldn't pass up. I don't get to be back in Arlington as much as I used to these days, so it was a treat to be able to spend some quality time running down this stretch of road. I also enjoy city running in general, going past office buildings and hotels, restaurants and city parks. The 5K was followed by a 10K, which I am not ready to take on, but many others were. Definitely worthwhile, I will run it again next year if I can.
