Overview: This was the best Elm City turnout yet. It was very exciting to workout with all these guys. After our workout I stuck around for the community fun runs. My parents came and I challenged my dad to break 6 minutes. His mile PR is 5:49 and he said he is not in that kind of shape right now. I told him I would pace a 6 minute mile and coach him through it. Little did he know that I was setting him up(I had the watch). He finished in 5:48, a new PR and at 51 years old. Today was a good day.


  1. Justin, that is a phenomenal time for your dad. Now I know where you get your drive. Awesome stuff. My dad is 76 years old and still runs 3 miles a day sometimes he does doubles!
