RayK has probably run a few thousand 5Ks more than you have, son. I'm very glad that he and Laz are on the scene to mitigate this disaster. RY and his crew are a bunch of turds.
None are faster though.
With any luck, you'll get older and you'll slow too - the alternative is that you die young or find yourself unable to run at all when you're 61.
You keep reminiscing about those good ole days when you and your buddy could crank out a 27 minute 5K - finishing just ahead of that pregnant woman pushing a stroller. Good times.
You go for it, oh walker of the woods. You go!
