Can you really put 72 guys in one race?

April 13, 2007

Right now the Mt. SAC schedule has 72 entrants and 1 heat for the men’s 10 000m scheduled for 10:30pm PST.  I guess I’ll find out tomorrow if thats really going to be the case but, I believe there will be two heats of 36.  The results can be found at    and will be covering the race with video.

Travel from Flagstaff-Phoenix-Los Angeles went smooth and I met up with Eric Kiauka at LAX and we battled the traffic 40 miles east to Walnut, California.  We couldn’t believe the amount of warehouses and big box stores that occupy most of the space outside of LA.  Kind of a neat place to visit but I can’t wait to get out of here.  We found a park to run in this morning, a lot more hills than I would of liked the day before a race but it was nice to get out of the streets and onto trails.  Afternoon run at Mt. SAC was good, a nice trail and a chance to see the track.  The funny thing is that the hills around the track had all these cows roaming around on them…  we need more of that at Guelph.   Lets just hope for a calm night tomorrow.
