A few years ago I ran 3 miles in 13:47, which is approximately a 14:30 5,000 meters (5km). Today I ran 4 miles and purposely did not look at my watch because I did not want to be depressed. The last half mile was hard. Fortunately I almost stepped on a garter snake which gave me just enough adrenaline to finish the run.
I really need to get in better shape. In 3 weeks I'll be running a 5k road race sponsored by Regent University. I'll post my training here. (Should be a hoot).
