2014-10-11 - MCRRC Matthew Henson 5k Race

~3.1 miles @ ~7.6 min/mi

The Matthew Henson 5k goes well, with an official result of 48th place of 114 finishers (behind 37 men and 10 women), 2nd of 7 males 60-64 years old, and a gun time 23:10 (average 7:28 min/mi).

My 8-year-old nemesis Jason Parks isn't there to beat me, but I am again just behind Adriana and Brenda, the Rosas sisters (ages 15-16), just as at the 2014-05-26_-_MCRRC_Memorial_Day_Race.
