June Parks and Rec 5k Series

The Sioux Falls Parks and Rec department puts on a 3k/5k series every year, Monday nights in June and again in mid-September to early October. I've worked Monday evenings for years, but this was the first summer I didn't. I hadn't been running fast at all, so I treated the races as my speedwork. Way more fun than trying to push myself on the trail by myself!
