I missed the sub-19 yesterday and also fell 2 seconds short of my seniors pr by running 19:06. I thought I had it in the bag too when I saw the 3-mile split of 18:14. Evidently the mile marker was misplaced, as it took me 51 seconds to get home from there. I know that I don't have much of a kick, but it's not THAT bad .The course was USATF certified so I'm pretty sure that overall distance was accurate. It was a small race of 100-120 and I ended up a distant 3rd overall. First was 16:57 and 2nd was 17:44.

On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
I hate stuff like that. I ran a race in HS on a course that had incredible misplaced mile markers. My "splits" in that race were
Umm, yeah, not really, no. I'll never know if the total course length was correct, but I suspect it was short since everyone on the team PR'd that day by about 45 sec each. But the miles were definitely way off.
I ran a 5k this past weekend and I was amazed how fast the field was. There were only 72 runners, but the top ten were all under 19:00. 16:22 won it, places 1-3 were 16:-- 4-6 were 17:--, and 7-10 were 18:-- (I was 12th with 19:42). The top two masters times were 17:16 and 18:11. Don't assume that small races won't have quality fields!
Nice race, Jim!
