>General Running>14 min 5k , is that good enough.

I dunno, Alisal High School is not in Nantucket.
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Do you think they just didn't film his warm up miles or do you think he just did some stretching and then pounded out some 4:40 miles starting out cold?
I don't think it was just stretching -- it was definitely strides and drills. You can see he is breathing pretty good before he starts. Whether he jogged a couple of miles or did a set of drills and strides (which may be more useful than jogging a couple of miles), you can be sure he warmed up.

Yeah I'm bummed they didn't include 20 minutes of him jogging, doing strides and drills, taking off his warm-up clothes, taking some sips of water, pissing in the bushes, and doing more strides and drills. That would have made for a kickass video.
I think its in Mexico?
Dont call it a comeback
What if he had his shirt off during the warmup?
After watching that, I can see why non-runners could give a french fry about watching a live marathon on TV.
There was a point in my life when I ran. Now, I just run.

The Diary of a Once-ran.
Just watched the end of the Payton Jordan 5k.. Nantucket was getting crushed going into the last lap.. but finished by flying out into lane 3.. and passing Korir and Mead.
That jackass in the video isn't me, wtf are you guys doing. Don't know about you fartknockers, but i've been putting up some good numbers on my "training" runs. Don't think i'll compete though, i just run 'cause i like it, like to be outside near the water.

So did you stay with the running at all?
It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
Do we have to put up with yet another stupid thread started by ManFromNantucket?
I vote we lock this thread down to read-only or delete it entirely.
Fat old man PRs:
This is not a new thread. AP bumped it because that type of thing amuses him.
Rule of thumb is if you don't want a thread to stay on top then don't respond to it.
never runs the tangents
Something about this reminds me of how from time to time at work someone will reply all to an email from a distribution list, then immediantly a dozen people will hit repy all to tell people to stop hitting reply all.

Yeah, i did, thank you kindly for asking. Was going to participate in the Harfordt 1/2 but pulled my groin, and couldn't run. I was going to set up a tootsie pop stand but it was cold and raining, so i just stayed at home and drank beer. Shipo, i was up your way not long ago, passing through though, on my way to North Conway to go climbing. What did i climb you ask, The Prow on Cathedral ledge, we aid climbed it.
