50 halfs by age 50 (2018
Ok, I'm not ashamed to admit it. I've been running for about 3 years now and have yet to break 30 minutes in the 5K. I'd like to, though. Surely there are others out there who are also working on this noble goal. It's not sub-16, it's not sub-17, sub-19, or even sub-20. Aspiring sub-30 5K runners come out of hiding!
I've been blessed with a combination of natural slowness and a tendency to get injured on relatively low mileage. But I'm tired of only seeing these racing threads for runners who are so much faster than I am. Back-o-the-packers, come out and join me in my quest!
I didn't run in high school. No, wait. I did. For three weeks. And I got injured. So my current 5K PR happened about a year ago, when I was 35.
I'm ready to do better than that.

I am okay with being in the back of the pack most days, but I wouldn't mind being at the front of the back.
