This dude is 80 years old and ran 3:25:43 at the Rotterdam Marathon yesterday, setting a WR for his age group. 7:50 pace, this one will likely last a hundred years. In the same race Seteng Ayale, age 55, ran an incredible 2:19:32. Tim Dooling may have some competition.
James McGown reports being healthier than he has been for awhile. He has been running 100+ mile weeks and a final 21 miler this past weekend as he preps for the Lincoln Marathon.
Kaci Lickteig won the Novartis 10K in 37:04, nice work on a warm muggy morning. Bridget Easley was 2nd in 37:43. Stacy Shaw was 2nd master in 42:59. Eric Rasmussen was the Men’s winner in 32:21, our newest mate Matt Seiler of Columbus was 5th in 34:56. Good racing by everyone.
Blew out the carburetors this morning out at Two Rivers State Park. 2.5 mile warm up and down, 2 X 1.5 miles @ 10K pace w/3:00 recovery.
Wednesday night track work at Millard West, 6:00 pm. 1-1.5 mile warm up and down. 1 X 1 Mile, 1 X 1200, 1 X 800, 1 X 400. 3:00 recovery jog between each. Start at 5K race pace and each subsequent effort just a little finer and faster effort. Giddyup!
We had my old buddy Henry Rono in for the 2008 Omaha Mile. Henry is one of the true legends of track and field.
