Yelena and friend

Gary, Craig, Yelena & Jen were all having their first run at Customs.  Speedygosling Yelena ran an all-time 5k pb by two minutes, for any course! And this is after training at Dickson on Thursday night. I showed her around the course and she had plenty left for the sprint finish. All bodes well for when she joins the W30s at the end of the year!

And Happy Birthday to grandson Josiah, 11 years old today!

  1. Wow. 4:12.35! A time trial - no rabbits - great running.

  2. That's the amazing thing: Keith ran it solo, and did a time most 35 year olds would be more than happy with. And he is in the 55's.
