I’ve got a couple of “February” course records that have stood the test of time. Maybe this will be the year they fall? These are a couple of the oldest records that I’ve got.
Twenty-three years ago (02-09-1991) I dipped under 15 minutes at the Fudgesicle series 5k running a 14:57. This took down Buddy Bostick’s record of 15:30 from a few years prior. There are only a couple of more weeks and the series will be done for 2014.
Eighteen years ago (02-10-1996) I ran 24:31 at the Bradford Valentines 5 mile for a new course record finishing 32 seconds up on Gary Gardner (now Umass Lowell head track/XC coach). Since 1996 no one has broken 25 minutes with Casey Moulton coming closest with a 25:01 in 2004.
