One For The Thumb

1500m gold this morning – 4:04.35, almost exactly what I ran last year (PR at the time) at the outdoor national meet.  Good way to end a crazy season, proving my theory that if you ever think you know how … Continue reading

800m Silver.

Second place.  Can’t really complain because I didn’t know what to expect in this one, race turned “tactical” but when it came right down to it I lost a fair and square 100m dash with a 700m lead-in.  As is … Continue reading
