good luck on your CARA race tom. Come up to rockford next weekend, and make it 2 CARA races in a row! They are allowing 20 minutes until the next heat after masters, so plenty of time for you to slot in.
HA ha! Its not about 'that guy'. Its about you. And even if he shows, you might carve out an honorable 2nd or 3d. Maybe you'll awaken your inner miler? Even if you upped your 4 mi pace by a couple of minutes, that would be something noteworthy, wouldn't it? We are all experiments of one.
I've been carving out a honorable 5th place in my age group all season; no need to go to Rockford to do it again.
I would like to see you and Soupbone run a fast mile. But to devote all Saturday to a 5 minute thrill just doesn't seem like a good use of my time. Good luck. Let me know if you'd like to spend the night before or after.
Thanks for the good luck wishes. I wouldn't be running it without you...after all, it was your idea for me to come up there and do it w your 'crew' support as you called it. But your long distance crewing will probably be just as effective.
