Mogadishu Mile 5k

Finished up the Mogadishu Mile 5k today as a virtual runner.  By that I mean that I actually ran, just not at the main event in Irving, TX.  For those who don't know, Thursday and Friday were the 20th anniversary of the Battle of Mogadishu.  All proceeds from the 5k went to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.  For people in Irving, they actually got the chance to run with guys from the battle.  For more history, see here.

My stats: 3.14 miles in 27:51.73, just under 9 minute miles.  I gotta work out more...
