running race 22:01 
shoes: adidas takumi sen boost
5k race at Arnold city park. flat paved course through woods on narrow service road. After race a woman I had met, runner on WU cross country team that just got 3rd at Div. 3 nationals, asked me how race went...I hemmed and hawed, but then she asked me how it FELT. I said, felt like a good effort, and she replied, 'That's what counts, isn't it?"
Well, I did knock 21 seconds off the last 5k time (albeit on a flatter course), and felt like I was doing everything pretty well. So I'd rather be running slow 5k's and prepping for a fast 2 miler, than the other way around. Hope thats whats happening!
So I searched all of the area Turkey 5k's (10) No runners faster in 65+, 3 in 60+. (Including a very good runner I know personally - maybe injury or training run). So wat the heck, maybe it just goes w the territory.
