KCB Clean & Green 5K

September 17, 2013 | Comment

The KCB Clean & Green 5K was held this past Saturday at The Covington Sports Complex in Covington, LA. The race was presented by the Keep Covington Beautiful committee and put on by the 15th Street Flyers Running Club of Covington, LA.

The course was out and back through the Sports Complex and through a neighborhood in old Covington. The race started off warm but breezy. The temperatures quickly climbed and it got hot and humid fast. I started off fast and comfortable at a 7:13 pace, leading the women. The heat eventually caught up to me and I ran out of gas. I slowed down to a 7:45 pace and was passed at the 1.5 mile mark. I held on with the leader about 15 seconds ahead of me but I could not get back to my 1st mile pace.

Dave Dessauer won the men
