I am now signed up for the local turkey day race. My 6th year.
I opt for the 5 mile route and can't help but smile when the masses take the left about a mile into the course for the 5K route. The 5M is MY race. I chose the 5K in 2010 and posted my second to slowest pace. My slowest year was in my first year --- 2007.
I want to be better each year --- each year at least a little faster. I'm another year older. Can I beat my old time? Will I beat my old time? When will THAT age thing begin to make a difference?
My slowest race pace is faster than I can manage when training. Why is that?
