I missed my sub-30 minute goal and I am pretty motivated to do better at these distance events. Genetically speaking I feel like I should be able to do well at distances under 10k, and I need to figure out a training scheme that will get me there.
I am a big fan of these NYRR races, they have a nice balance of social, competitive, community and active aspects. The picture to the right is actually from the 5M Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving in Southport, CT.

So all the events at the Lonach Gathering are under 10k? Reminds me of the scene in Two Towers where Gromley is running and he is telling himself "breathe, breathe" and then "we dwarves are natural sprinters". (As for training, mayhaps wearing a kilt on the next run will inspire you to take that last 10 seconds off the time.)
