SEFF 5k

OK guys, fresh off completing the Shamrock Marathon today, a near record time for me as I completed the 26.2 miles in 4:51:21, 4 minutes off my record time. Not as good as I had hoped but considering the cold, damp, and windy, conditions I am pleased with my time.

I suppose it's time to talk about doing the 5k run again on Saturday morning at SEFF. I'd like to see a much bigger turnout this year for our rd rendition of this event. I see more and more guys and gals trying to get back into shape and be healthy so let's do this.

Who's in?

So far we have

Myself - still chasing that 23 minute 5k
Laine - if he doesn't oversleep again
Ian - urged on by a scooter and better late than never!
Eric - he can't say no, he won it last year!
MLT67 - Mr. Peachtree 5k
Vintauri - hopefully
dee-grose - Mr. Bronze medalist last year)

I will be glad to 'motivate' the runners by driving a golf cart ahead of them with a donut hung on the back.

Someone else's golf cart or someone else's donut? This is getting confusing. Maybe you should both just run instead!

Last year my son Thomas rode along beside me on a scooter. I kept thinking of the cut scene in the NES game Punch-Out. Remember that one?

Looking forward to trying the 5k again this year. It is an easy route that is mostly flat. Wasn't able to run the whole way last year but will try to work up to it over the next month.

Both. Why put my own stuff at risk, right?

You know I used to think running and exercise was a joke too until I was laying on a cardiologist table having a pipe cleaner run up through my veins...

You guys can joke about it now. I take this stuff seriously though.

Sorry, Bill! I've always believed that laughter is the best medicine. I won't dirty up your thread anymore.

I can't promise I'll be there but I'm back working into running again. A sciatic nerve issue set me back but luckily that was taken care of with some Chiro and PT.

If I can get my stride back I'll run with you guys.

Count me in, Bill. Maybe this year it will be more than just you, me, and that Canadian dude.
