US Age Group Record (Read 128 times)


Ready to race!

    It took a while to get ratified, but it is official now. Not sure how long the record will last, but for now I hold the US AG record for 50K road race.  I count this as one of my biggest accomplishments in running. I prepared for over a year for this and it took 2 tries. I'm very happy to have this goal complete.

              Ready to race!

                The only thing I did different was I added a light tempo run on my off weeks. So one weekend I would go long and the next I would go about 12 to 18 miles with several miles at 50K goal pace.  I think these 50K pace runs helped a lot. I started at 8 miles and increased to 16 miles at 50K pace.

                      Wow. Great job!!!  

                       

                      As a member of the 5th decade I can fully appreciate the enormity of the task and the work you put in to get there.

                            Impressive! All your hard work paid off. Congratulations!!

                            Go as long as you can, and then take another step.


                            Why is it sideways?

                              6:30 pace for 50k is no joke. Nice work.
