2012 North Shore Cupid’s Love Dash 5K race Highland Park, IL – What happened

I reviewed the video of my participation in the 2012 North Shore Cupid’s Love Dash 5K race Highland Park, IL.  EDIT:  The distance is exactly 3.6 miles, per my car odometer.

Instead of following the map that was posted on the web, here’s the route we took:

From the Highland Park Theater, go northeast along Central Avenue, all the way to the end.

Turn back along Central Avenue, make a left onto Linden.

Follow Linden all the way to Beech St.  Hang a right onto Beech St.

Follow Beech St. until you hit St. John’s.  Make a right onto St. John’s.

Take St. John’s north until you hit Laurel.  Hang a right onto Laurel.

Keep on Laurel until you hit Linden.  Hang a left.

Stay on Linden until you hit Central Avenue.  Hang a left.

Head for the Highland Park Theater.  DONE.

Some rough calculations, using Google Maps and a flexible ruler against my laptop screen gives me a preliminary guesstimate of 4.086 milesEDIT:  The distance is exactly 3.6 miles, per my car odometer.  I ran that in 29:38, giving me an average race pace of 8:14 per mile!
