My friends all drive porsches, I must make amends

Lord, won’t you let me win a Mercedes Benz? 

I just wanted to say that the dude, Shadrack Songok, who beat me at Mt. Sac 10 000m with a strong last two laps just won NCAA champs over the same distance.  That makes me feel good.  Also, the Speed River training group is running very well at the moment.  Taylor Milne ran 3:42 last night to win the Harry Jerome 1500m and Eric Gillis ran 7:58 last sunday to finish second at the Kajaks meet.

Next up for me will be the Cambridge Mile on June 16th. This is a very fun event on a clay/gravel track that adds anywhere from 5-10 seconds on your mile time.  Seemed like it added 15 seconds for me last year!  The winner, if under 4 minutes, will drive away with a Mercedes.  After that I’m flying to Europe on the 21st and racing a 5000m in Arhus, Denmark on June 29th.  The meet director says the meeting record of 13:27 should go down this year… it better.

    I wonder if you should contact Jack Daniels for your mile conversion before running this race; the last time we thought 5-10sec slower we were both humbled; speaking to Dr. Daniels before sure would have helped us in Flag.

    Hey – maybe we’ll see you there. The newborn *might* be travel worthy…if not I’m going to see if I can come up with the toddler. Good luck!
