If this doesn't capture the spirit of competition, I don't know what does (Read 153 times)

      That's got to be the first time I've seen a 60m race come down to a finishing kick.

      In the words of my late-coach : Just hang in there, relax... and at the end of a race anyone you see.....just pass them

            Kind of a slow starter but once he got those legs going there was no stopping him.Cool

              Shows what happens with fast turnover.  Short steps, but lots of them.

                That was great. I can only hope I will be able to do that someday. Thanks, LtH.

                        I like how they're so competitive that they don't even shake hands immediately.

                        PRs:  Marathon (2:49xx; '13)  Half (1:25xx; '12) 10k (40:26; '11) 5mi (29:23; '13) 5k (17:33; '13)

                          I wonder how many rest days followed that run.

                            These guys are fast man. I'm guessing that they are by some criteria better runners than anyone on this thread

                              I had to watch twice to make sure I wasn't one of the contestants.

                               

                              OK, not quite yet, but give me 10-30 years and I WILL be in that race.

                               

                              I will note that the skinny grandfather beat the somewhat heavier grandfather. But not by much!

                              5K - 25:16, 10K - 55:31,  15K - 1:20:55,   HM - 1:55:21

                                Both of these guys were 90+ which shows that you don't have to stop just because you get older.  Fits in very nicely with my long term running goal.  There was a 90 year old who ran 6:35:47 in the Marshall University Marathon in Huntington, WV last year.  It set a world record for 90 year old males.  Maybe I can make it my goal to beat that time.  Smile
