"Where did you get that outfit? I want it!" says the lady warming up before the Midsummer Night's Mile track meet and admiring 🤖's MCRRC classic club colors. "You can have the singlet," he says, "but please don't take the shorts, Ma'am!" Thunderstorms leave the air heavy hot and humid. After 4x200m intervals and a recovery walkabout the race begins. Official result: 9:42.4, a happy new PW (Personal Worst) with minimal knee pain and at a pace that accelerates lap-by-lap. It's good enough for 107th of 122, fifth of six in the male 65-69 year bracket, ahead of a cute 3-year-old who runs holding his Mom's hand. 💕MCRRC Midsummer Night's Mile
