OK, I've posted my favorite Boston Finish Photo from 2007. My actual finish time that year was 3:29:something.....I wonder if I'll ever be able to do that again?

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.

Ragnar 2nd & 3rd

I spent the weekend doing the ordeal of Mental, Physical and Social interaction known as the Ragnar Wasatch Back......It was great being involved is such a wonderful team effort in torture and endurance under stress. My highlight of the RWB was running leg 34, "The Ragnar", 4 miles up a two lane blacktop road that acends 1700 ft. up to 8900 ft., at 80 degrees in full sunshine, did it in 52 minutes while booking in 18 road kills. Not too bad for an old guy. Now its back to the real world and back to training for my next races.......tyi
