Wow, great race Evelyn! That pace is just about the maximum I could probably sustain for a 5K race. Sounds like we are at the same level as far as race speed goes. I'll come down to that Litchfield race in June and you can kick my butt! You should be really proud, that is quite a commendable time!

I just got back from my Duathlon, I don't have all the race totals yet, but it was a fun day!

Nice run..Im especially impressed since you "jogged" the whole course 45 minutes before the race...once is usually about all I can handle...

Great run! I am looking forward to times like those some day in the not too distant future. Finally broke 30 minutes on the 5k in my triathlon! Hope to drop another couple by the end of the summer, but 24 is outstanding!

Super Race! Keep up the good work! I hope you had fun too? I'm guessing you had a Brew at the pub as your reward?

Cheers, Go Fast!
