Yesterday I finished a 5 mile race. Key word finished. I ran the whole thing. It took me 57 minutes with only a couple of people finishing behind me I did finish. I have done two 5K's this year and these 5 mile racers are serious people. There was a 2 mile race that started right before us. I overheard one of those racers say maybe next year he will be able to do the 5 mile race but he just isn't able to do it this year. He was probably 10 years younger than me. I guess my 11 minute mile would be failure to him but I ran it unlike him. I am proud I finished no matter how long it took!!!
