>Racing>My first race report: Cove Family and Sports Medicine 5k
When you're on your deathbed, you won't be wishing that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will be wishing that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
I ended up with race #68. Naturally, I considered stalling and letting someone go ahead of me to get the next number, but since they'd already written my name down with #68, it would be a hassle to change and would make it all too obvious what I was up to.

The Greatest of All Time
Well done Jeff. Got that HR up there didn't you?
Think Whirled Peas
Just because running is simple does not mean it is easy.
And just b/c I love this pic and to make fun of you, I imagine this is what you looked like post "mud-blow":
Yeah, but I know I didn't max it out. So I'm still stuck with a guess for what my current max is (I estimate 193), until I decide to suck it up and blast up a hill. Or HTFU and finish a race strong.
While I'm thinking of it, why has it been seven years since your last race (until this one)? You know a ton about running and have some solid times, what happened? Just curious, so if'n you don't want to get into it, no biggie; I was just surprised when I saw this thread that it'd been so long since your last race.
Curiously, our HR is about the same for 5k's...low to mid 180's.
Yeah, but you're running about 45~50 sec faster than I am. I need to up my mileage. Don't think I'm not watching.
