5 in 43:30

I am surprised and pleased that I can report that on a very carefully measured 5 mile (8.05km) run the other day, I just finished the calculations when I timed myself and I clocked in at having accomplished these 5 miles in 43 minutes and 30 seconds! 

Obviously, this is NOT an Olympic record.  But for ME, this is pretty damn fast!!!!  It means I did EACH mile of the five in 8 minutes and 43 seconds!  For that distance, for an old guy like me.... I am pleased with that time!!!! 

(For my friends who prefer metrics, I believe I calculated it correctly to be that each of the the eight kilometers I rant, I accomplished them with an average of 5 minutes and 25 seconds per kilometer.)

Congratulations on your accomplishment🏆 I have never tried running, but walking is one of my favorite activities whether outside, inside or on a treadmill. Also, glad you enjoyed my recent post on the medicine cabinet so much that you ordered Bill Bryson’s book. It’s on my bookshelf and sooner or later I will read more.
