2013 Sub-19 5K (Read 1928 times)

    I forgot to say that the winner was the college XC coach at 16:10.  2nd place was about 17:50, so he really smoked his team!

          Congratulations, Eric! I enjoyed your report and those weren't exactly ideal conditions(a half mile of gravel?) but you still got the sub 19 and PR. I like the footnote about the coach taking his team to school out there - back in HS we had a coach who could do that.

           

          And Dougal, make no mistake, I eat dirt on a regular basis (3 times at the last race)  but I just love the way you kind of have to dance along the trail.. And hey, no broken bones yet!

            I ended up doing a Turkey Trot kinda last minute this morning.  I ran an 18:51.  I was honestly hoping to go about 20 to 30 seconds faster, but I'm still happy with the sub 19.

                  Nice running Dougal - Congrats, you had an excellent 5k season! And your notes on how you got there are important info - thanks for posting those.

                      Late to the game this year. Actually have been getting back into shape and losing some extra pounds. Think I am ready. My son and I raced a 5k last weekend and I hit 19:24. It was a grass, gravel, pavement mix with two good uphills. So I have a flat 5k next weekend downtown where I plan to go after that 18:59.

                        Nice work getting in under 19, mnyce!  Getting that extra 20-30 seconds off one's 5K race time requires a whole bunch of things to come together perfectly on race day. Doesn't happen every time we want it, but that makes it all the sweeter when it does happen.
