Dulwich Parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 22/09/2018
Race Distance: 5 Km

I missed a sub-17 5k by 0.21 seconds (yes, twenty-one hundredths of a second!) at the Wimbledon Hercules track 5k event last August. It was good to finally break the 17 minute barrier at Dulwich park today. It's funny how we all chase round numbers (sub 4 hour marathon, sub 17 minute 5k, etc.) as targets based on an arbitrary time system of 60 seconds in a minute and 60 minutes in an hour.
