3For yesterday’s Oceanside Turkey Trot I had a goal: “25”…and I did it! Ran all the way and finished in 24:56. #576 out of 5,799 (top 10%) – #42 Age group Men – #48 Age group Men + Women.

DSCF0451Also learned this: keep your cool! Less than a mile in, two guys dumped right in front of me; I got mad, “flew” past ‘em—and spiked the left hamstring! Told my hurt hammy two things: “25;” and what my CrossFit & Olympic lifting mentor Jimmy Baker says: “C’mon now, I know you got it in you,” and enjoyed the rest of the flight…

6Thanx to older daughter Michelle for the photos, and to my wife Joanne for getting me there, and joining Michelle in cheering me on!
