I thought I would check out a 5K, just to see if my time had improved any. I ran the Run With the President 5K on UO campus on 11/12. I wanted to see how fast I could go if I tried to go as fast as I could, without the heat of summer impeding me. The results are astonishing, even to me. I ran a 25:46 5K with a pace of 8:18 and I even walked up 18th.
My previous best 5K was in 2007 at 29:19.
A year ago, I ran a 5K on campus at 32:30.
A year ago, I had been off the MS injections for 1 month.
