-->Drop 5 minutes on my next 5K in September 2015.

After running my first SM this month, I realize that running long distances (for me 20K+ are long distances!) is way less scary than trying to become a faster runner. I know I have the will-power to handle long trecks in the mountains (12 hour+ days over a week, for example), but I've never attempted to develop power, focusing only on endurance.

My shame-gremlins are grumbling really loud at the moment : "What can you do with a 39 year-old, overweight, unathletic body ???" 

Grumble on...

I reckon if you keep pursing your cool impossible, not too far into the future you won't be overweight and unathletic.  You'll be confident and strong!
