Crystal City Twilighter 5k Race Result

It was 8:00 p.m on Saturday 26, 2008 and I was in Crystal City.

Crystal City hosted to the inaugural Crystal City Twilighter 5k. I was joined by two other runners from my running team and we had a great time. The course was relatively flat and there was a small breeze although I think I suffered from what must have been a bit of heat exhaustion. Even though the race took place during the twilight hours the temperature must have been hovering around 75-80 degrees.

I was aiming for 30 minutes, however due to the chest pains I eluded to earlier I only came in at 34 minutes 11 seconds. The time wasn’t bad; however I feel I could have had a much better performance.

Congratulations to Crystal City for putting on a great event. The volunteers were friendly and it was comforting to see so many runners from across Arlington join in.

I truly hope they hold the next twilighter again next year. Anyone out there run a 5k, 10k, half or full marathon recently?
