My first 5k in years

I haven't run in an orchestrated race in over 2 years now. There have been several that I've wanted to run, but for one reason or other I haven't had the chance.

This week I found that there is one I practically couldn't pass up. A race right in my home town, less than a mile from my house. Alas, I have no excuses left. I went yesterday and signed up.

Also interesting was that starting June 1st there will be signups for a Running program at the Y. I'm not really interested in paying for a customized running program. I already did that when I bought the book on marathon training that I'm following. But I am interested in finding out if there are more people in town for me to run with.

As a quick side note. My run this morning put me at 150.1 miles for the year. That amazes me.
