Thunderstorms delayed the 2021 Melon Run 3-miler but left slightly cooler temperatures at race time than usual. The race has been renamed the Jack Gamble Melon Run in honor of the Florida Track Club's first president.

I'm very happy with my performance. I was able to really race, hanging on to a solid pack of runners near the front, and out-kicked another age 40+ runner in the last quarter mile to claim the Masters division victory.

I think this was my third-fastest Melon Run ever with a time of 17:56. The last time I went under 18 minutes at this race was 2014.

I have been getting good mileage in (generally 50 mile weeks) but not doing any fast race-specific training. I did get one track workout in the week before this race. Feeling good about my fitness!

My left knee has been bothering me over the past month but it is getting better. Good things ahead!
