Ok so I don’t need speed. I have no illusions of ever running a race to compete with anyone other than myself. But that’s what it all comes down to for me – always working to improve and seeing if I can beat my personal records.
That pic on the left is from me crossing the finish line at the 5K I did this past April (pic source). My chip time for that race was 31:49. The year before I did 31:25.
