    5K run today

    My wife has been talking smack about running this 5K for a month. Today was the day and she was gonna kick my butt. I'm 39 not in great shape by any means and have 2 bad knees Well we took off and I headed out in a jog . The wife is a speed walker and in great shape .
    3 miles later I finished it up in 38.39 min . Just 3.2 min ahead of the wife . She couldn't believe it and hasn't said one single word about it all day . I just look at her and keep smilin

    I can do it in about the same time if I push myself really hard. At 19 in the service my personal record was 17:25.

    you made a grave tactical error. even if you can beat her at her own game sometimes its better to let the wookie win...

    My ex was talking smack one day about me being out of shape. She said I probably could not even do 10 push ups. I dropped and did 30. That shut her up for about a month.
