I got a new sensation

January 19, 2008

Today I ran a 1500m at the University of Toronto.  I won the race in 3:51.16 (61, 2:02, 3:05) and it felt pretty good considering that I haven’t been on the track much this season. Taylor Milne took the race out for a few laps, then Gillis took over for a couple of laps and then I took over for a couple of laps before Ryan Finn gave me a good run into the last straight where I re-passed him.  In general I’m very happy with my fitness and my body has held up decently well with the mileage and now I know I’m doing alright in the speed department….at least in the “getting ready for a spring 10,000m” department.   Toronto Results.

So the news I’m excited about is that from now on I’ll be running with New Balance.  Reebok had great service and I really enjoyed being on the same team as Kevin Sullivan and Nate Brannen but, overall New Balance is going to be a better situation for me, I’ll get into the switch a little more next post.  NB makes awesome shoes and gear and I’m very pumped to start racing in their spikes and flats.  Lighter spikes and flats may just give me the extra few seconds alone, haha.

Next week Eric Gillis and I are off to Boston to race a 3000m at the Terrier Invitational at Boston University. 

13 guys in the first section today- Nine from the Speed River/University of Guelph training group.
