    Yesterday was the great Thessaloniki Nighttime Half Marathon and 5K. I first ran this event last year and really enjoyed it (watch for the review later this week). Last night was the first time I ran the 5K (in fact, the first time I ran a 5K in a foreign country!) and it was certainly my proudest!

Due to that, I was not expecting much but was surprised that I actually ran a pretty decent race in 1:38 (7:30 pace).
