Wish I could run like you. At my age and condition, I only run to the bathroom, and that is a short sprint. Seriously, Congrats.Wow. It’s been 5 years since this thread was bumped. Another fun race. I averaged 6:53 per mile this year. Ran hard but didn’t crush it too hard because I’ve got a triathlon next weekend.

Just found out that my coworker passed away after suffering a heart attack 4 miles into the race.
I saw someone on the ground just outside the stadium getting medical attention but didn't recognize him.
Nice!Just registered me and the fam for this year's run!
Registered with my company's team again. 7-time company champ, but I might be going down this year. There's a 29 year-old this year that may take me down. I had a close call a few years ago with a kid in his mid 20s, but I dropped him at mile 3. Luckily he left the company, otherwise he would have beat me the following year for sure.
Looks like it would take a 5:53/mile pace to win my division. That's not happening, but a 6:30 pace would probably get me into the top 3. That's doable if things go right. I've been doing weekly track workouts with the Arizona Road Racers and getting back some of my 400m-1600m speed back, so hopefully I can carry that into the race.
I bet. The race gets so crowded. Even when I start in coral #2 it's crowded. I can't imagine how bad it gets after that.Nice! That pace is crazy! I admire your persistence.
I've been sidelined all January with respiratory/asthma issues. Finally got some steroids and am finally on the mend. Still, I'm gonna have to see what to do with our 4 1/2 year old. She's gonna do the kids run, but we're gonna have her during the regular 4.2. Will likely just hang with her til we get done. Pushing the jogging stroller last year was hell. Worst race ever. I think I would rather carry her half the way than push that thing.
