Wingin It- dont go nuts during the taper - I always kind of do.
That is an awesome smoking 5K time Sam, congrats.
I have followed this plan exactly for 14+ weeks, hopefully I can deal with another 12 days.

Good job and a good finishing time. I'd love to come close to that in a couple weeks.

Congrats Equus on completing the race. Lots of time and effort toward training and it paid off.
I have to laugh about the geriatric quote. I know we don't talk alot about everyone's age, but I've got you by 10 years. I've always considered "old" the next age group above me. Just having some fun, had to give you some shit about that one. I laughed when reading it. You are right that this has been a good thread to read and share.
