PR'd by 9 seconds.  I'me excited about this.  I had no reason to believe I had a PR in me based on my 5 and 10k performance.  I was frustrated about my 5 and 10k times because I thought my training wasn't a good as I thought it was.  This race is a real confindence booster for me.  I thought my age was outpacing my training and I was now on the inevitable downward slope. Maybe not?

Racing with Paul had a lot to do with my performance, we were together the whole way and I was inspired to hang with him.

6:55  7:00  6:55  6:52  7:02  6:51  6:53  6:52  6:47  1:59 (6:37)

This is one of my best races, I felt strong during the whole race.  I've never felt this way before and I've never had a kick that was my fastest mile (extrapolated).  

I took a GU at the halfway point, I've never done this before at this distance, I think it helped a lot.  (Thanks Paul, great advice)

Great job. It's inspiring to come through with a good race. Thanks for the pick-me-up. I think age slows down the recovery and flexibility, and because that affects the ability to run long mileage and do speedwork, decline is inevitable. However, that's only a maximal effect, the practical effect is that good training produces good results. Way to go.
