While reading other running blogs, I noticed many people have PR's from years ago, often with gaps between their running. I've been wondering what to consider as my PR's. Listed on my blog are PR's for races I've done since starting the blog, yet these are not my lifetime PR's. 16-17 years ago, I was a cross country runner and spent two years running on a high school team. My 5K PR for that time is, if memory serves, 21:12. Now there is no way in hell I'm going to even come close to that time. I also had a few brief stints as a runner throughout my 20's where I ran several 5K's. These times too are much faster than I am now, and will likely never be that fast again. Therefore, I decided to post PR's for different stages in my life. They're now on the left under "Upcoming Races"
