Fastest in North Texas? That didn't last long

2 weekends.

That's all it took for my 21:40 5k time during the Mayfest run in Fort Worth to be vanquished from the list of the fastest runners in North Texas. The cutoff time in my age group, 35-39, is, gulp, 19:02.

I checked into that running site that I wrote about a few weeks ago, the one where my former co-worker has compiled a list of every 5k and 10k run in North Texas. Because I had run my 5k at the "beginning' of the season, which runs from May to April, I had a good chance of getting on the list of the fastest runners.

But today, my 21:40 5k time wouldn't even qualify for a Top 10 mention amongst the 55-59 year-olds in North Texas. And for that matter, I'm not faster than the fastest guy in the 60-64 age group; or the 65-69 age group.

I am faster than a 70-year-old.

Bring it on, John McCain.

If I were running in North Texas, I don't think I would make the fastest list even if it were the first race, first weekend, and I was 90 years old. I'm still impressed that you were on it!

Hey, at least you held the title for 2 weeks! Better go out and smoke that 70 year old.
