On the fourth of July Tanya and I ran a 5K. Tanya took it easy, but I pushed the envelop and PR'd. But I am and ultra marathoner, what am I doing running in 5K's. Running hard for a few miles hurts so much more than running easy over a lot of miles. But never the less I enjoy running and love the atmosphere on race days.
I have heard that runners as they age get slower, I must be breaking that trend. This year I have PR'd in the following race distances:
50K: 5:16:55 Orange Curtain
Marathon: 3:56:41 P.F. Chang
1/2 Marathon: 1:39:12 Fontana Days
5K: 23:07 Claremont Days
Why do I write this? It's for those people who think they are past their prime, get up off the sofa and get out there and do something. You never know what you may be able to accomplish.
