Shadrack Wins the Benz

June 17, 2007

It was an exciting race last night as Shadrack Korir pulled off a very quick last lap to run 3:56 and win the Mercedes.  I ran my fastest time on that track in the three years I’ve raced there and it felt easier than the other years.  I think I was 4:10 but haven’t seen the official results (edit: 4:10.31).  My splits were pretty even as they were all 62-63.low without a kick as I was all alone my last two laps.  Right after the race Cal Staples (my training partner) started asking me questions with a video camera and I was joking around with him.  At the end of the interview he told me it was for Flotrack.  I thought he was just goofing as opposed to a real interview, so I started to think about the crap I just said… well it isn’t too bad. Interview.

On thursday I head off to Europe where I sill stay in London for 5 days and then head to Arhus, Denmark and race a 5000 on June 29th.  Once again I think racing the shorter stuff is going to help my 5000 and I was pleased with the way I felt last night.  The race came at the end of a good week of training where I had a Fartlek session Monday, long track intervals Wednesday, in the 30C heat, and by the time I’m done my long run this afternoon I should cover 145km for the week.

    You interview was good, I just needed to be a bit quieter and let you talk more; it was a good interview!!!! I just needed the FloTrack t-shirt to make me look more official; hopefully Mark will fire me off one and I can cover Canadian Nats…
