a mile in ‘slow motion’


A ‘Slow motion’ scene was what it felt like at tonight’s Mile on the track.  In a good group of runners, finished 5th overall in 5:00 (though several runners along with me had a bit of a discrepancy with the timing as it looked like I came in around 4:58/4:59 at the finish line, but the official time listed as 5:00).  Fell off the lead group after the 2nd lap and couldn’t catch up, while moving as fast as I could in what felt like quicksand/molasses/lard.  Didn’t have those young person’s legs for this young person’s distance.  Still it was fun, with my son and many friends at the event – great seeing @danagoesthedistance there!  Another Mile next week, this time off-track.
