Happy 4th of July

A sunshining moisture holding morning brings this runner across the finish line in 21:43. Splits: 5:25, 5:41, 5:57 and 4:39, (3.82 miles?), average 5:40/mile. Finish in fourth place as first Master. You saw the goal and now beg me to concede to any sustaining speed in the shorter races. Another look is it's the same pace as Rhody but on a longer and more challenging course.

What's next? Continue base training, explore possibility of a first ever one-mile race on the outdoor track in two weeks.


  1. Happy 4th Mark and good job on the race. Same pace as Rhody but on a tougher course is a positive sign.

  2. Whatever you may say, I think that's a rather outstanding race for someone in base training.
