2.5 mile shake down run this am. Really it was to put a couple of miles one of my new pairs of running shoes that I will run at the Provo 1/2.

I have a pair of Brooks Addictions that I am retiring that I have put 800 miles on since January and they still run very stable, comfortable,  and controlled. amazing what a little shoe goo will do for your shoes if used correctly.

Slick @ Krazy Kurt's 1/2 Mary

Postby Tom Slick on Sat Aug 07, 2010 11:15 am

It was a good day. My stated goal was to place in the top three of my AG and I'll be .... , I did!
I just wanted to put my knee through some race conditions and have a good day. The knee responded like its never been a problem.
I did my regular crowd up to the front of the pack and started on the second row of runners as we lined up across the road.
Krazy Kurt was late as as usual and we didn't get off the starting line till after 7:am. But, oh well if your running one of Krazy Kurts races you have to expect the unexpected to be the norm for the day.
I started my run with a sub 7 pace that rounded out to a 7.02 minute mile for the first mile. I was going to try to hold that pace for the race.
1. 7.02
2. 7.19
3. 7.12

8. 7.54
9. 7.31
10. 7.31
11. 8.34
12. 7.50
13. 6.50
Total: 1:37:11 (garmin time central)
Kurts Official time: 1:37:05.5, 7.25/M
Good for a 3rd place in 55/59 M.

It seems that the 1st place old guy beat me by about 4 minutes. Maybe he will quit running by this time next year and I'll train a bit better for a 1/2 mary and move up and take 1st next year.

I saw BDZ and heard that MMaid was there. But I didn't see her before I left.

It was a good day to be on this side of the Dirt Nap!!!!!
One of the guys I work with, his son Brian Summers took 2nd place overall and our very own Sasha P. took first overall.
7:30/M - This will be my SGM goal!

Oh it was tough to get up this morning. My "boy" Joey is home this week before he heads back to college in Denver. He and his buddies are non stop marauding perpetual motion machines and they all expect me to keep up with them. I hit the rack early last night to be awakened at about 11:30p, they wanted to hang and play foosball and pool and such. Kind of like an all week impromptu party atmosphere. Oh well, got back to bed about 1:00a and got in a couple of hours sleep before the 3:00 am call of the white line fever. Zipped out and did 5 miles with "Joey". Oh well, that’s life in the fast lane….I keep thinking I need to get more friends my own age, but then I think….most of the people “my own age” are retired (really tired) or dead.      Life is good!

 

Yo Teena....whats up?

Yowzza! The morning air was really cool and crisp for my 8 mile speed and hill trainer. I think it was about 54 degrees this morning and it really felt great to run in. Oh yes! I can see and smell fall (football) in the air......can't wait. That means it's only 38 days and a bunch of hours till SGM..................get ready!
