Eric: 17:49 is not too shabby. I ran a 12K last year and and a 20
miler in '98, but have not run a 5K in ages. I always get trashed in
my age division in 5 and 10K races. This is one tough area, so third
in your division is a good show. Now if you can be 3rd in your
division at VT, that will be great. Of course 9 and a half would do
bit better than 3rd. Now where did that long weekend go?
