~3 miles @ ~8 min/mi

Son Merle and I visit the local former-high-school track as the sun begins to set and commence testing ourselves with a bit of speedwork. I do five 800s with times of 4:19 + 4:11 + 4:06 + 4:15 + and 4:15, with cooldown walks of 2-3 minutes between. Merle sprints faster but shorter distances. He has been working out in the gym lately, and I estimate that if he dedicates himself to running he will be beating me by the end of the year, at least at shorter distances.
