After a few years in the wilderness, I was back competing last year (2013) in my local 10k series. It’s a fun race – mostly on-trail (grit/grass/mud) – and the distance sits well with a relatively low training overhead. Note to self: you do still need to train! See 2013 times for evidence.
Anyway, the plan for 2014 is to revisit those “glory days” of 2006 and see whether my older and (hopefully) wiser self can once again duck under that magic sub-40 min barrier.
