5K Race Question & General Comment

So, after reading Jon’s race report, I started wondering how seasoned racers approach a 5K. Do you run balls out (as they say), and just let your body pick up the pieces later? Is the plan to have some sense of pace just like you would for a marathon, only faster? How do YOU approach it?

General comment: After running my first race one town over and then getting a ride to my second race, I’m feeling somewhat lazy about choosing the next race that’ll come before the one I told everyone would be my first race. Funny, isn’t it?
