Nice work, Ryan. Just keep in mind, what isn't a great time for you (and at least 11 other speedsters) leaves the rest of us drooling with envy.

For perspective, I offer my 18:27 in a small town 5K last Saturday. I came in second overall. The 47-year-old winner confessed to having trouble in the heat, which is why he beat me by “only” 45 seconds compared to the 2:30 lead he had on me at another 5K a couple months ago.

Actually, I think seven of the top 10 were in their 40s. (At 36, I wasn't one of them.) These dinky races can be humbling, too.
