3,1 km warm-up

5,13 km race official in 19:37. I don't exactly know if the course is certified, but everyone's GPS-watches show 100-150m more than 5 km. So what: Began a bit too fast (1st km 3:34) and then came the hilly part on a dirty road. Still a good start.

47th place of 4.867 runners.

5,2 km cool-down

73' incl. the same 5.5k cross-race I ran a year ago (the course was a bit hilly through a forest with a difficult underground; my watch says 5.33 km). Ran 21:14, 36s faster than last year. I'm happy about that.
