Age of Running

I am in decent shape and am one of those people who tracks their activities on Garmin, Strava, etc. As a kid, I was not an athlete by anyone’s imagination. I struggled through the 600-yard “run-walk” that was required as part of the annual Presidential physical fitness test. But I started biking and running in 2003 and have run 5 marathons since then, almost getting under 4 hours in my last marathon in 2016. But something happened in the last few years.

Maybe it was the 6-piece collarbone fracture and resulting hardware installation from a bike crash. Maybe it’s just age. But my goal now, for March 1, is to run 3 miles in 27 minutes. And I have about 40 seconds to go.
