Beaten by Kenyans Again

Whew. Just finished the Palos Bank Southwest Half-Marathon.  The weather broke our way - blue skies, cool, light wind.  The course was lovely - wide road through the woods - practically a straight line out-and-back route.  1500 or so runners.

The lead pack, when I saw it, consisted of 3 Kenyans.

I feel fine, which means I could have run faster!

It's my firm opinion
that no matter how fast I go,
I'll never catch the Kenyans.

They make lightning look slow.
