>Look What I Can Do!>US Age Group Record
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.
my new workout buddy...
congrats! what's the age group and what was the race?
I did it at a 50K in Tulsa in 2021.

07/02 Merril's Mile 6-Hour 09/03 Hainesport 12-Hour
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.
same age group here but no records! great job...it's not easy doing any race much less 50k and at a record pace!
Wow, that's fantastic! I hope you hold this record for a few years.

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.
