Neon green laces II

I just wanted to get back to you with a follow up to the neon green laces post of a couple of weeks ago. The sneakers – dang it, I mean athletic shoes to which those laces are attached and the feet in them crossed the line at the Atlanta Men’s 5K.

ATL Men's 5K Black

It was a great event, aimed at raising money for the Big Brothers-Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta.

As much as I mocked my new neon laced footwear, I have to admit they did help these flat feet carry the old man across the finish line. I also attribute the good luck brought by my nearly 30-year old SU orange bandana/do rag (quite appropriate with my alma mater heading to the Final Four!).

I run more for health and fitness than for time and competition, however; it is nice to know I wasn’t the last old timer in my age range to cross the finish line.

I'll never get over having race results waiting for me in my inbox
