Chris Abraham after running 5k

Quickening my 5k time week after week at #cc5kFridays

Still not dead last and I gained a wee bit in both pace and time

Last night I ran the second of five Friday night 5k runs in what’s called the Crystal City 5k Fridays series sponsored by Pacers Running. Long and short of it: I shaved six seconds from my time last week: 46:17 vesus 46:11. Then, in terms of rank, 488th out of 497 men, this week it’s 510th […]
