    And I didn't start this topic to talk about how good I was. I was just curious about other freshmen's times across the country compared to mine. You're a little oversensitive, Mikey.


     



    Now first off kid, if u were starting this topic to 'find out about other freshman's times across the nation', you wouldn't have started by saying "my best time in a 5K is 17:30, anyone think that is good?" Obviously you already know your pretty good a lot of High School runners would kill to run a 17:30 5k, I'm a senior and I'm happy as hell with a 18:30. I've been training my A** off to get to where I am. You also say your not bragging, but why then would you put down replies like "I just did, 7 mile easy run..." or "I'm one of the best freshmen in New Jersey". obviously you all ready know your good so do us a favor and if you would like to post here post useful info not a load of ur bs full of self attitude, cause frankly no one gives 2 s&!%$. Be proud of the time you have cause injury and something called cockiness can bring the best man to his knees.

    ""Do you ever miss it much?" Denton paused as he was sliding out of the booth and looked at Cassidy.

    "Quenton, you'll come to understand this eventually.  I had my time, I really did.  It was wonderful, no doubt about it.  Stood up there blubbering like a schoolboy with my hand on my chest...."

    "Bruce..."

    "...and that was then.  Now I have a wonderful life.  Family, career, good health..."

    "Bruce...."

    Denton Laughed.

    "More than I can tell you," he said, picking up the check and handing it to Cassidy."

    Re: I'm a freshman boy in high school...

    whoa, looks like a lot of people woke up on the wrong side of the bed these past couple of days...ok, maybe he was bragging a little, but id be proud too if i was one of the best distance runners in my state. did you really have to bring him down again...and again...and AGAIN...?

    Oh and sorry i cant help w/the actual topic. im not a freshman or a boy, and if i was my time still would be nowhere near 17:30.

    i do see you bragging.

    Re: I'm a freshman boy in high school...

    To run 15:22 as a freshman is more than possible, I done seen it with my own eyes at the county fair.

    No, seriously, there's a guy in Quebec running 13:53 at the age of 16. He ran sub-8 for 3k at the age of 15, I forget the exact time, but it was comfortably below. Three weeks ago, he beat 4:01 miler Mike Woods at the Canadian Junior Cross Country Championships.

    So yeah, when you run under 13:30, or even 13:37, get back to me.

    Jason Rexing once ran 17:30 while being rabbited by a bear, and bearing a rabbit on his back.  I'm not impressed, kid.

    Re: I'm a freshman boy in high school...

    I ran 14:54 for three miles this summer.

    Who cares what I can run?  Do you say that to your coach?  Do my points become more valid with each 30-second drop in my 5k time?
