According to the powerof10 I'm not doing too badly in the UK rankings for vet 40, but I'd like to just dip under the 22 minute mark for my own sanity, and the fact that I know I can do it, and haven't yet this year is a bit annoying.
I've ran 22 5ks/5000m this year, so hopefully by the end of the year I should have cracked it!

I know I didn't manage to get under 22 mins last year either, but I was injured for a good portion of it, so hopefully it'll happen today, with a favourable tailwind in the last mile please!
Best of luck to everyone running, and of course to everyone doing the North Run tomorrow :D
