He told her he is feeling strong

Windermere Run Among the Lakes 2015
His very first 5k was this one, in 2005, finishing in 22:10.


Last night, poolside, darkness setting in. He told her he is feeling strong for tomorrow’s race.

His feet haven’t felt this good since 2006.

His measurable goal is to run faster than his very first 5k, on the same course he runs tomorrow. He was 46 when he ran his first 5k in 22:10.

He thinks he can run faster than that without killing himself, even though he’s a decade older.

He’s been running since 1999 and has found a million ways to stay motivated.
