    Well, I know a lot of you ran this race.  Give us a race report! 

     

    I know Jeff ran a good bit better than last year ... Come on, out with it.

        Thanks! The good thing about you is your writing ... I felt like I was there.

          Was hoping you'd be there to document!

            On hindsight, I wish I were, too. I think it was a good race.

            In it for the long run..

              Great race, Jeff!

                Yep.

                 

                I don't really have a race report, but it was my fastest 5k since being injured, so I'm happy with that. The masters winner passed me in the last half mile, so that wasn't exactly a dream come true, but it was a great morning anyway. Plus, Cheryl had a 40-second (I know, right?) PR!

                 

                That's definitely my favorite 5k course...It's always good to me.

                  Holy crap a 40 second PR? Damn. Must be her good coaching! Was good to see you guys out there. Tanya, when I was watching you warm up, I was thinking that you are looking fit and strong for sure.

                  Elly.


                    Wow! I missed out for sure. Everybody seemed to have had a memorably great run.

                    Meh, $5 is $5...

                      Congrats to Cheryl on the big PR!  

                       

                      My Achilles and hips felt fine, I managed to wear more spandex type things without wearing a speed suit (and thus was quasi-slutty for a change...you NEVER go full slutty), and ran well enough for sporadic running.  I'll take it.

                       

                      ...and yes, I'm posting in a message board again.

                        Cheryl had to repeatedly dodge a dog in the first half mile until she lost her temper and bellowed "GET THAT F**KING DOG OFF THE COURSE!" right in front of kids and everything.

                         

                        She still feels bad about it, but I know she's a true competitor now.


                        In it for the long run..


                          Congrats to Cheryl and you, too, Tanya.  Glad you are feeling strong.  

                           

                          Welcome back, Justin!

                          Intentionally Blank

                            I saw the dog.  Dogs were definitely welcome in the race ads, but the dog in question was on a longish lead and loping along in the middle of a crowd.  I think the lady w/the dog started way too close to the start line, and should have kept him/her to the side.

                             

                            Great race.
