A big 5K PR today! 23:19 @ 7:31 pace. (previous PR was 24:48) It's a great flat, fast course in Mattapoisett, MA, plus perfect weather. The startline was a bit confusing and there were a gaggle of young children at the start line. All running with pinwheel arms, not in a straight line while talking back and forth to their friends. A couple ran into me and several cut infront making me stumble. I'm not sure kids should start that far forward. My 1st mile was waaaaay too fast, mostly so I could just get pass all the kids.
My legs are a bit tired after 9 on Friday, 13 yesterday, but I wore my new Brooks Launches and my feet feel so much better. Definitely the aches and pains recently were from my dead shoes. I was pretty tired in the last mile and got passed by so many people, but I'm still pretty happy I gave what I could and got a PR.

It's a nice way to celebrate mother's day with my mother-in-law, Bernadette M. who did awesome today! Happy mother's day! :)

    me too James. They definitely don't need to be that close to the startline. It's dangerous for everyone.

    It would have annoyed the heck out of me, but I have to admit your description made for a slightly amusing mental picture, except for the stumbling, which is always scary.

    I support kids getting involved, but don't put them in front as obstacles! It's bad for the adults and bad for the kids! In any case, great performance!
