Updates from the Competition

The initial goal being to break 21 in the 5K, I'm trying to keep track of those my age in Minnesota who do it. There were 4 at the Valentine's Day TC 5K and I didn't know what 3 of them look like; I found photos online, but they were hard to track.

First, Jim Holovnia, who ran 18:34. He ran a 17:27 last year (and four times under 17:45). Here he is with his team; the photo has a bunch of guys in my age class to watch.

Front: Matt Waite. 2nd row: Jim Holovnia, Pat Billig, Scott Lindell. Back: Rob Class, Wm. Larranaga, Rob Economy. Lindell's the only one not age 55-59.

Eric Porte ran 20:30. Last year, at age 54, he ran a 19:07.

This really is about all you find in photos for him.
Craig Hagensick ran 20:32. Last year, his best was 20:30.

His Facebook profile pic. I have no idea how old it is, but I've met him and it looks maybe 2 years ago.

Patrick Wellik ran 20:51. His best last year was 20:58.

Work photo (optometrist). The only running photo is blurred.
If you want to do an age comparison, here I am in 2018:
