My wife and I took part in an 8K race today and I finished with a time of 38:40. That means I ran a blazing pace of 7:47 a mile.

I'll admit it's not all that fast, but compare it to my pace times of 8:02 in September 2004, 8:34 in August 2004, and 8:22 in June 2004.

I've run more races than this, I think, but these seem to be the only ones I'm keeping track of.

As usual, all that matters is that I beat my wife. She finished the race with a time of 42:30. That's a pace time of 8:33.

The next race planned is this one.

Happy boitday, Copester. Age 29? Should do 6-min. miles, easy. (I going get you on Welsh Olympic team in marathon.) I ran mile in high school in 1947 in 5:01, which was exactly one minute, one second more than I planned. At least I had a plan. Good luck on next race. Keep us posted. I living vicariously off you.
