Wow JD, that was a big run ! You are getting your stuff together! Looks to me like you will be entering a big goal race soon and getting a Boston qualification.....Keep up the great training and attitude!!! The Nestle 5k is coming up on June 2nd, have you got any interest in running it? I tís a great small town race with a super family friendly attitude and itís pretty competitive . probably the best value in racing in Utah. Under $10. to sign up!

hey thanks Tom!

no racing for me - all my miles have been slow as i work on whipping this neglected body back into shape. i may make a race goal for 2019 if things keep on keepin' on this year.

but good luck to you in the upcoming 5k - it's great to hear that races for ten bucks still exist out there!
