While I am back home for Christmas, I do the 15K again with the LMJS crew. I paced myself better than the first time.
The defining moment came on my second lap when a runner came whipping by me and I shouted after him (not that loudly), “We have one more loop,” not realizing that I was being lapped.
The winner finished in around 48 minutes (which is like running a back-to-back-to-back 16 minute 5K!). I finished in 67:38, a 2-1/2 minute PR, and still good enough for first in my age division.
