So a few weeks ago I told Jim that I wanted to run in an upcoming 5K race. He advised me against it, as it was only 10 days away, but knowing I was going to do it anyway, he gave me a miracle 10-day training program. The results were not bad:

On July 4th I ran a 4K. Again, I was happy with the outcome. http://www.nvrun.com/res-fire4k-07.html 145 out of 691. I'm digging this.
Today there were no gyms open for basketball, so I ran the longest training run this year, 10.2 miles, at a 10:36 pace, and am still exhilarated.
