Concept2 "Webclock" Off?

Just a note -- it says I posted that last message at 4:50 a.m. September 26th -- my time in Rose Valley seems to be 9 hours earlier (7:50 p.m., 9/25) -- I knew time in The Valley went a bit slower and is always behind the rest of the East Coast -- but surprised to find it 9 hours slower!!

September 5k Test -- 17:55.0

Bob's 5k is awesome and an inspiration to us all! I don't spend much time on this BB and usually only go to post my training efforts once every week or three. Maybe I just don't like to be reminded of the effort any more than I have to be. :-) My training schedule and travel made today the best time...

July 5k

Did an 18:19.0 for the 5k on 31 July. Was more ambitious to start out but couldn't hold it. Still working back from a long break earlier this summer. Other distractions and my heavy yard work took much longer than I was hoping after my great trip to Europe. Maybe by the end of August I'll be closer ...
