Nice group at the DSE Ball Park 5k

After race number three we got together with Rich and Sheldon, two SF Bay Area runners I have known for a long time. They are the two that started making sure courses were the right length back in the 70's. They led the pack. It was so nice catching up on old times. We had a lot of stories to share and we got it all on film.
Rich told me that he had a calf issue and he wasn't sure how it would hold up. He had to pull out. A lot of people over the years think that Rich and I could be brothers. Thanks Rich for your support. It means so much to me.
Sheldon stretching before the start of the 5k. Nice car!
Getting to the starting line of race number three. I was running about 6:25 pace with a half mile to go after picking it up and my hamstring tighten up. In fact so bad that it took me over a minute to cover the last 1/10th of a mile. I am so upset. The last time I had a hamstring issue it hung on for like six weeks. How can this be happening? Maybe I did not drink enough water this week. And I know I was not getting enough sleep. Going in for the Sports Massage on Monday with Dave.
The race director George had lots to talk about. Thanks for your support! Really enjoyed your race.
After the race we stopped by Dr. Jennifer Weintraub office in Palo Alto to see how I was healing. She did such a great job on sewing me back together.
