Like money in the bank

I ran the Haddon Heights Firecracker 5K today. While hot I have no complaints I did my best. My splits were 6:42; 7:02; and 7:08 for an overall time of 21:39 and an average pace of 6:57. I think I’m good with a 7 minute pace. I went to Runner’s World and looked up a marathon predictor calculator entering my 5k result. It says I am able to run a marathon in 3:27:16 (I love they have this down to the seconds). Now that’s a great time way better than my target. So I’m done. LIke money in the bank I can now kick back and sleep late and just count down the days till Steamtown knowing I have this. Pretty cool. Maybe when Frank’s out there sweating away some Sunday morning I’ll drive by on my way to the mall give a little beep-beep and waive with the AC blowing at full blast.

  1. Nice time on the 5-K, Tony. That’s exactly the time I did in the Haddofield Y’s Men’s 5-K about 8 or 9 years ago. It’s been a steady slide down ever since. Oh well. Kick back and let the lounge chair do the work.
