Some races are simply superior to others

But a 5k is better than both because you can get it done without spending half your day on it.

Like a marathon (26.2 mi) instead of a half marathon. If you are going to go to all the trouble, why not just go all the way.
Ha! Yeah, why not go the rest of the way? It's only another 13.1 miles!

Living in such a busy areas has killed my cycling opportunities. I am so ready for someplace different. My town is at best, busy enough to make it unenjoyable unless I go at 7 AM on a Saturday. At worst, it's suicidal.

The one-seat bathroom was centrally located in a small office, not out in the hall. I sat fairly close to it and could see him start 'the walk.' I'd jump in ahead of him and hang out for 5-10 minutes and let him wait a while. By the time he started the walk, he was already at critical mass. My coworkers used to love watching him squirm.

VT, I found your story! made me laugh all over again.
Actually stumbled on this again, cuase I was looking for a thread to post my race tomorrow morning. I'm running the 5K leprechaun dash with the mrs. and haven't trained but am fairly confident I'll do fine as I'm not out to do any better than 10 min. miles.

I finished in 1:07:22 (7:13 min/mile) but more importantly I didn't have any knee problems after the race. I'm hoping this will be the beginning of being able to get back to my regular training regime.

I've been trying to get under 8:00/mile for medium (4+ mile) runs and am having trouble. I can run one mile in about 6:40, so a 7:00/mile seems like a stretch. But I am starting to dig the minimalist shoes (VIVOBAREFOOT Evos) I've been wearing for the last four months. How many miles a week are you running?
