A Quick 5K Update

Before I called it a night, I had to check and see if the official results were posted for yesterday's La Habra 5K. My official time is listed as 20:19, cool!

I was 7th in my age group of 25. Jesse was 4th. In the top third!

I was 53rd overall, out of 299. That puts me in the top 20%. I don't think I've been that high up before. When I have checked it seems like I'm usually firmly in the 40 to 50% range.

Has anyone seen Meb Keflezighi's new commercial for Mastercard. I saw it tonight during Gray's Anatomy. I wonder how many people actually know who the runner dude in the commercial is? I was excited to see it. Runner geek, I know.

Congratulations on the fast time. I bet there are very few who know who Meb is.

Nice 5K time. Sub-20 is right around the corner!

I'm with you, I picked out Meb. But I'm biased - know where he went to college?

Well, look at you Darrell! That's a great time - a time that I hope to match in June. Very good!
