Steve Spence and his daughter Neely Spence ran together today at the Richmond, VA 5 miler. They ran together through 3 miles in 15:32, then Neely took off and ran 5:06 and 4:45 over the final 2 miles to set the course record of 25:22. Steve Spence who is now 50 years old finished in 25:45.
What is more impressive? Neely's time of 25:22 or Steve running 25:45 at the age of 50?
According to the course preview it is uphill through 3.5 miles and you gain it all back in mostly the last mile. That would explain the crazy last mile by Neely.
Congrats to both!
