So there have been some interesting developments regarding the LENGTH of the "Midsummer Mile" that I ran on Wednesday night. (Here's a link to my race report if you missed it.) I think all the kinks have been worked out, but just to make sure, I'll hold off talking about that right now - check back on Monday for more.
For now, I have a few more photos of the race:
Kacey starting the second loop.
The lead women finishing. The clock reads 5:17, and winner finished in 5:12.
In the men's race, Brian Sames (484) finished 3rd in 4:30. Nearing the halfway point
in this photo, I'm still in the picture! (I'm just behind Ben Merchant in the black jersey.)
Jeremy D running up to the halfway point....
... with a smile!
I tried to catch these young bucks in front of me, but I couldn't do it. I was just close enough
to make the kid in white check over his shoulder a number of times in the final 200 meters.
Close up of last image (200 meters from the finish).
Giving it everything!!!!
Jeremy R has shorts that I want. And a mid-foot strike that I'd kill for.
More great Jeremy R form.
This photo is UNEDITED from the photos that Jeremy D's daughter took. It's focused
a little "south" on Jeremy R, and there's a little peek-a-boo liner showing. LOVE IT!
Jeremy D heading to the finish.
A bunch of guys about to cross the finish line.
First it was a descending 12x200 workout.
Then it was a descending 8x400 workout.
The last killer workout was a nasty 16x200 (4x4x200) descending from set-to-set.
Finally, just a few days before the race, she had me do a short 6x200 descending workout. I haven't posted about this one yet because it wasn't a big deal. I was given these instructions: "33, 32, 31, 30, red line, red line, with 200 jog between." I ran 0:32.6 (1:05 rest), 0:32.9 (1:05), 0:31.3 (1:10), 0:30.4 (1:12), 0:30.6 (1:13), and 0:30.9. I rested up for a few days, then raced on Wednesday night.
Check out my race report from Wednesday night for more. Have a great weekend!
