I love doing this little 5k, this was my 14th trip to the Nestle 5K, I used to run it with my son when he still liked me! It's only a 5k but it's the most competitive and fun little 5k I've ever done, and it's such a great family atmosphere! Springville Utah does it right!  I took 1st place in my Old Man Age Group with a 23:52 out of 25 runners. 149th out of 2139 runners overall, with a 7.58 minute mile average, my first mile was a 5.3 minute mile and then I started losing steam. Not too bad for an old guy even if I do say so myself, I was only 8.37 minutes behind the overall winner......Next race (kinda a race) Ragnar Wasatch Back June 27-28.
