Hey y’all, long time no see. I didn’t post Friday because I was off actually running a meet of my own out in the middle of nowhere Ohio. 28 second 5k PR for a decent 14:17. By no means am I “good” yet, but at least maybe I have a little more credibility as a blogger now that I’m not a complete sack of shit on the track.
Anyway, hot damn this was a crazy weekend for track and field. Here’s my take on what went down:
25 year old Kenyan signs up for Milrose 5k as a high schooler and breaks HS National Record
The Stormin’ Mormon Broke the Collegiate Mile Record
I know I’ve made religion jokes and such before, but I actually have nothing negative to say about this dude. He’s awesome, 3:54 is insane, and maybe he’ll be a big part of the future of American Mid-Distance running.
Which leads me to my next headline..
Alan Webb runs slow. Again.
In related news, a freshman on my team ran faster than this on Friday and placed 4th. In a meet in the middle of nowhere Ohio.
Matt Mr.-Steal-Yo-Girl Centrowitz once again gives us a reason not to lose faith in American distance running
THERE ARE FOUR F*&CKING COLLEGIATE RUNNERS UNDER 13:20 IN THE 5K RIGHT NOW.
Just read that headline again. Dude. Holy shit. If the race goes out hot at NCAA’s, a 13:30 might not place you in the top 6.
Peter Pan runs Rupp-Certified 2-mile record
Rumors are that the pollen count inside the facility was low enough for him to toe the line.
(good job bro, I’m actually impressed with this time <3 )
-Cam Levins 3:57, this kid has depth.
-Ryan Hill 7:43. Holy tits.
V-Day post probably coming up tomorrow, and an interview with the one of the top USA jr runners coming soon
