Goal of sub 17 minute 5k (Read 8209 times)

    Of all the stories I've read here on RA, this has been the one that I've been most interested/invested in. What a mission!

     

    Good work Mikey.

     

    Couldn't agree more, well done!

      Nice. 37 pages, just on this thread. Probably another 80+ everywhere else. Just for a 5K. Not an easy distance to race. Not an easy goal.

        What a great story. Congrats!


        just a simple cat

          Yay!

                This morning in Cambridge, MA I ran 16:59.44 (PR) in a USATF certified 5k. I am free.

                 

                Don't stop. Don't ever stop.

                 

                Damn, man, I am so happy for you.

                          Thanks guys, sincerely. That PR was about to have it's 10th birthday in May and that would have been a rough milestone.

                           

                          Good to know I'm as fast (or faster) than I was when I was 34. That seems like a lifetime ago.

                           

                          Very, very impressive!  Congrats!

                          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                             

                            I have been impressed with many results on RunningAhead over the last six years. But never has one made me this happy.
