Just have to tell somebody... (Read 897 times)

    I ran 4.2 miles this morning at a 6:55 pace. Not too fast for most of you, but I haven't run sub-7:00 in years. I turn 40 in October. I guess I woke up having a mid-life crisis and had to see if I still had any gas in the tank. I grabbed my watch and ran for time (rare for me). To tell the truth, it wasn't very difficult. I take it slower these days to avoid injury, but I could easily have done a 10 K at that pace. Maybe a sub-40 for my 40th birthday could still be possible. Thanks for allowing me to brag. Big grin

          Impresses the Tight lipped outta me. In my world, sustained pace under 7:00 always sounds impressive. Nice job for an old guy. And this forum is all about the bragging ...

            It must feel great, to be able to turn back the clock. Good job!

                          Everyone here can relate to reaching a running goal, no matter what it is. It's nice to hear others getting excited about what they do, and it's great to be able to share in that excitement.
