Best 5k race in a long time. I feel like I ran tough and determined the whole way and didn't wilt in the middle. Splits were something like 5:44, 5:52, 5:45 and then whatever for the .1 but I finished strong.

15:35 age graded!

This was my 80th race logged on the FRB.

Thrilled to break 18 on a warm, windy day.

Congratulations Rob. Not just the placing and time but also the overall attitude and enthusiasm for running in general. Definitely helps to keep masters competition alive and going here locally.

Excellent run. I know that course and it's not a fast one. You're keeping fit.
