The turnout for the 2012 Magic Shoe 5k was incredible. The winning time was 14:21 on a USA T&F sanctioned course. Pete Magill set an new American record of 15:05 for the road 5k (for over 50 yo’s) …and 20 runners broke 16 minutes! While I was quite a ways back at 19:11, it was still very motivating to witness all of the excellent performances. I especially enjoyed the section of the race where you encounter the race leaders after their first 1.5 miles.
