I was feeling no pain, feeling good in my brain

February 13, 2012

I’m not going to write much about the race because; a) I’m tired from traveling and the six hour time difference, b) IAAF did a good re-cap of the race, and c) I’ll leave with you the “Road to London” trailer for the documentary which comes out in July.

As the article said I raced a lot of that race alone.  That isn’t because I didn’t go out hard, my start was fine.  My problem was that I didn’t have the confidence to go with the move that was made a couple of km into the race.  I’ll blame that on not racing for four months (last race was the marathon) and not having the confidence which comes with racing.  So yeah, I let the group of eight get too far away although it was nice to be able to pick guys off every once in a while.  Little targets throughout the race.  The downside is that I could have challenged for 3rd place.  And I say challenged because Dame is known to have a strong kick.  The guys who went 1 and 2 are the guys who ran 13:10 and 13:11 earlier this week, they’re on a tear!

And for those who are wondering…  The Ethiopian who I helped was not Dame.  It was Endegena, who finished 16th.  You can see how that name, even after hearing it twice, escaped me and hence I referred to him as the ‘Ethiopian runner.’

Endegena’s over-dressed, it was his first time out of Africa. Yes, that is a jacket under the t-shirt and those are sweatpants.

Here is the “Road to London” trailer.  Paul has done good work here, enjoy.

    Great work in Diekirch! Just being within striking distance of any of those top 10 runners is a pretty amazing feat (feet? pun intended).

    Trailer looks good too. Who’s producing? I work for the National Film Board of Canada here in Toronto, let me know if they’re ever looking for a screening venue here. From one run fan to another.

      Brooklyn North is Producing. I am an independent from the Hammer. We are planning a screening in the Hammer and Guelph but he has lots of Toronto fans so that could be good. Chuck me an e-mail trebil@mcmaster.ca and I will contact you when we are getting closer to the release date.
