This morning Laralee, Alex, and I ran the Longmont Mud Hen 5K. April is always sort of dicey around these parts, but I was a little surprised when I woke up at 6:30 in the morning to see snow! By the start of the race the ground was pretty well covered and it was still coming down, albeit not quite as hard as earlier.

It’s a run around McIntosh Lake in the northwest corner of town, and it’s pretty low-key. I guessed maybe five or six hundred runners participated.

I finished in 28:34 which isn’t really all that impressive a pace, but at least less than thirty minutes (which was my objective: sub-30). Considering I never train for these things and the weather wasn’t very cooperative, I can’t complain too much.

The old man still has it. Well, has something anyway.
