Another Indiana 5k [corrected]

Yes, for the second Saturday in a row I ran in an Indiana 5 kilometer race (5k), which is 3.1 miles in English measurements. Once again I came in 3rd in my age group. The same 2 guys beat me as before. But I had a pretty fast race for me. As a matter of fact, if I had been 5 seconds faster, it would have tied my personal record (P.R.) for the 5k set in 1996. I could just kick myself. I probably could have squeezed out some more speed in the last mile if I had known how close I was to a new personal best.

I did run pretty hard. I just need to run harder. I think I can, I think I can.

Atrocious rhyme of the day:

If I can pick up just five seconds,
That's a new P.R., I reckons.

You can see my results at:

Note: I had to correct this entry. I first posted it saying I was only 15 seconds from tying my personal record. Upon doublechecking, I realized I was only 5 seconds off!

  • At the Dunes

    Asleep upon the beach, I hear a sound. I startle, raise my head, and look around. A helicopter, like a dragonfly, Buzzes over the water just so high.

  • Targets

    Besos and Musk had data revealed From the vaults of the IRS. Why does mine remain concealed? I’m just lucky, I guess!

  • Late Night Doings

    I eat my breakfast cereal Every night before bed. So when I seem to skip breakfast, I just ate it early instead.
