After today's race, all my future 5K times have to be under 23:40 to make my Top Three PRs. I pulled out a 23:37 tonight in warm conditions (77F) against over 7,000 participant runners and walkers.
I tore out in 7:27 and followed it with a 7:42 and 7:41 plus the change. The first mile was a second best race mile on my ledger.
So much for the numbers. I had about nine beer coupons from my teammates who left, to make the evening complete down there on the field of the Citrus Bowl afterwards. I only used two of them. Honest.
