I guess I'm going to do the 5k down at Ogden this weekend. I wanted to do the 1/2 mar. but because of my earlier injuries I delayed getting signed up and when I went to sign up a month ago it was already full. My son was planning to do the 5k and still really want's to. I have barely done any speed or tempo running so this morning I ran 6 miles with 2 fartlek miles in the middle with 8x200m at 6:00 pace w/200 rec. at about 8:05 pace. Overall ave.pace for the 6 miles was 8:01. I'm not expecting much at the race. I'll be happy if I can break 20 min.

PM   Ran 1 mile with my son in 10 min. then 1 more in 8:48

Good luck to you and your son with your 5K. Sub 20 is a good goal, one that I still need to reach. I hope to be coming in about 3:30-4:00 (if all goes well), probably long after you are done. If you are still around I would love to meet you.
