“I was pretty happy; it was the best 5K time I had run in over 20 years,” CRR Paul Amer gushed, after having placed third in his age group (60-64) at the Run the the Plunge 5K in Rehoboth Beach recently. Amer turned in a 26:14 and now has his sights set on the Caesar Rodney Half Marathon next month.
Shown here in the photo with a friend, Amer (bib #1) says, with tongue in cheek, “I haven’t been so highly seeded ever!”
Waxing philosophical about this recent accomplishment, Amer adds, “It pays not to have an impressive history. Then 26+ minutes makes you happy.”
Those of us who are getting up there in years would do well to look for these kind of silver linings!
