    Well shit.  The city made them change the course even more due to predicted unrest (I live in Minneapolis where Chauvin is being tried for murder and just south of Brooklyn center and north of Burnsville where the cops also killed people in those cities) The course is now 5.5ish miles.  So it will be a race, but nothing i can actually really pace.  Obviously police actions are the bigger issue, but fuck can the police around me stop killing people for a fucking week? Jesus.

     

    Just label it as a NZ 10k course and we’ll be fine with that. 👍

    5k - 17:53 (4/19)   10k - 37:53 (11/18)   Half - 1:23:18 (4/19)   Full - 2:50:43 (4/19)

      Seems a little long for a 10k

          True...but if you kill someone over $20 and then over an air freshener...and then solve only less than 50% of murders and then complain the biggest issues is not enough overtime for traffic cops...people don't take that well.

            It’s called peaceful protests in America.

            Many of us aren't sure what the hell point you are trying to make and no matter how we guess, it always seems to be something else. Which usually means a person is doing it on purpose.

              Watch out guys, a guy who says he is a doctor but claims that the COVID vaccine was just an attention grab by pharma companies who released unreliable data may come in here and ban you all! Going to have to create a "how America's policing issues cause short races" thread to avoid that.

                  DPS: i like the odd distance opportunity - you're in marathon build anyways - go old school and have fun and just race - you'll be able to extrapolate your time.

                   

                  Mikkey:  i had to think about it but the last race I followed structured training for was a half in October 2015. Late 2015 to 2019 (and then 2020) training/racing wasn't priority. My need now is just getting consistent running for awhile and I'll be happy 👍

                    I know those cases and there’s much more to it than that. But JMac is right and following his advice usually works for me...

                          dps did you notice that the course includes climbing stairs at lake st. bridge on the east side ?  .... I guess we just go out and give it an honest effort. You will be done about 15 - 20 min before me 😁.  .... ( And yeah Guilty!!! )

                              Sentencing has not occurred yet.  Wait for that.

                               

                              On a running (OMG) note - DPS did you see the announced protocols for Grandma's?  The two things that stand out to me are a: no bag check at the start and b) no area to jog before the race starts (the second concerns me more than the first - though obviously I'll accept whatever they have to do to hold the race).  At least they'll have portajohns.

                                That makes up for that missing distance.  Maybe now it's a 10K equivalent?
