We got there earlier enough to get our bib numbers and goodie packets and take care of the preliminary business before the race started. It was announced that there were 800+ runners for this years 5K. I grabbed Troy and drug him to the front of the mob and showed him how the Theory of Relativity works. (That is line up in front and run like hell and you&#39;ll probably finish in front of all the other old guys in your AG)&nbsp;</p> <p>The race started at&nbsp;almost promptly 8:30am and it was off in a blinding flash, all the really fast people were out of sight in no time flat. So I jumped in and started chasing the pack like a slobbering dog chasing a soup bone.</p> <p>The first 1.7 miles were somewhat up hill through the campus and then it flattened out for about a half mile, and again changed to a pretty good downhill running course past the stadium and back to the Law Library to the start/finish line. From the beginning of the race I tried to keep upping my speed but I was still feeling a bit sluggish from the Full Monte two weekends ago, so I just settled with keeping my feet happy and moving and not letting any old men pass me!</p> <p>At the finish line I checked my time and found that I had run a 23:51:51/at 7:40 per mile. I was estatic because I knew that I had to run something in the&nbsp;23 minute zone. Troy finished in 26:26:02 for a 6th place in his AG.</p> <p>At the awards ceremony I was one of the first called out and given an award for being the Best Dressed runner, I was just wearing my regular Red, White and Blues from head to toe. As time went on I got called up again for my&nbsp;1st place prize for for beating the other 3 old guys in my AG(65-69).</p> <p>OK, that&#39;s all she wrote, short race and a short report. Chow-Boing!&nbsp;</p> Sat, 07 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Oct 06, 2017 http://TomSlick.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-06-2017.html <p>rest day in anticipation of U of U 5k saturday</p> Fri, 06 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Oct 05, 2017 http://TomSlick.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-05-2017.html <p>rest day</p> Thu, 05 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Oct 04, 2017 http://TomSlick.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-04-2017.html <p>5 mi on the Big Block, lite breeze, 64*, mostly sunny.</p> Wed, 04 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Oct 03, 2017 http://TomSlick.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-03-2017.html <p>3 easy miles &amp; a W/O</p> Tue, 03 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Oct 02, 2017 http://TomSlick.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-02-2017.html <p>rest day</p> Mon, 02 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Sun, Oct 01, 2017 http://TomSlick.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-01-2017.html <p>3 easy miles this am....</p> Sun, 01 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 30, 2017 http://TomSlick.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-30-2017.html <p>5 mi recovery run - gettin&#39; better and better everyday....</p> Sat, 30 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 29, 2017 http://TomSlick.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-29-2017.html <p>6 mi on the big block, 50*, lt breeze, partial&nbsp;sunshine, FB&nbsp;W/O .</p> Fri, 29 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 28, 2017 http://TomSlick.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-28-2017.html <p>6 mi on the Big Block, recovery is coming along nicely....</p> Thu, 28 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 27, 2017 http://TomSlick.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-27-2017.html <p>7 mi on the Big Block, 9 am, 50*, no wind, full sunshine, Full Body W/O at the LCAC.</p> Wed, 27 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 26, 2017 http://TomSlick.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-26-2017.html <p>5 mi recovery/maintenance run on the big block this am.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 26 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 25, 2017 http://TomSlick.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-25-2017.html <p>3 mi run and a W/O. Now it&#39;s time to sit down and build my training plan for Boston 2018. I think I will model it after my 2006 training plan I made for&nbsp;Boston and cross it between my plan for the Full Monte, that should give me a very aggressive and meaningfull plan to run Boston&nbsp;! I think it would be great to BQ at Boston again, even though I have already BQ for 2018 &amp; 2019......</p> Mon, 25 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 23, 2017 http://TomSlick.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-23-2017.html <p>5 mi and a w/o....</p> Sat, 23 Sep 2017 06:00:00
