East Regionals

A hot day but not hot results for Sam and Steve yesterday. Steve had to back off the pace around 2k, Sam crashed shortly after, leading for most of the race with a nice lopey stride. We'll post results when we get back. 

[6/11 update with results. A pretty exciting race as you can probably tell.  (Read last sentence with air of sarcasm.)]

  1. You guys are an inspiration. I'm a college runner (15:17) with one year left, but watching you guys has made me realize that even if I never break 15, the real reward is the journey and not the destination.

    1. You're absolutely right, it's all about the journey. Best of luck with your last year in school and thanks for following our blog!

  2. That said, get after it while you're young! Don't wait until you're 28 like us schmoes.
