some other oldschool names i'm still seeing today:

Chris Miller

Eddie Ernest-Jones

Both guys seem crazy fast.. 14:XX-15:XX 5k's back then (late 90's/early 2000's), still 15:XX 5k's today.

I actually won this race a few years ago, with like 18:4X or something? I forget.. That WOULDN'T even get me top 40 in 2000. WTF?

sonja got 23rd that year, which is insane considering she's so damn fast.

GLOBAL WARMING or something wtf?

Eddy Ernest-Jones is apparently a local legend.

I think this is his IAAF: https://www.iaaf.org/athletes/great-britain-ni/eddi-ernest-jones-245746

I opened up a can of worms in the local running group.. I made a history post, talking about some of the past results & the fastest people, and now there's tons of posts, mentioning so many other people who were incredibly fast.

One new name I learned of which hadn't seen before: Paul Mwangi

Tons of people are commenting on it.. pretty cool. I love history of "scenes", so i'm always digging through past results, looking for names & seeing who they were etc.

ya lol. i joked with the guy who sent me the photo, who is probably a repub but not much of a trump fan. i said it was probably 200m short to inflate times, or a russian money laundering operation. whatever, i lol'd.

and i doubt it & hope not. his photo will be in schools/all over though, and shit will be named in his honor, unless he's "brought down" & disgraced. hoping for the latter.

he's disgraced already. then again there are apparently two public schools named after nixon (!!!!!). obama's got 13 already.

http://time.com/4226561/president-richard-nixon-public-schools/

according to that article, nixon visited one of the schools in 1989 and the kids sang him "this land is your land," a left-wing protest song written in 1940, when nixon was a lawyer for petroleum companies in california.

Nah he's not disgraced, that's the problem. He's a disgrace, but he's not officially disgraced. Unless he is officially disgraced, his supporters & colleagues will re-write history & make it seem like he had the best presidency of all time. They'll erect monuments of him, name ships & schools after him, just make it seem like his presidency was a utopia. Meanwhile it's an absolute train wreck & the guy is batshit clueless watching fox news all day, shitting on our institutions and constitution.

The only thing that will somewhat fix this mess, at this point, is seeing him impeached. But Trump's done a good job at creating this whole deep state conspiracy and denigrating the FBI, war heroes, free press, career civil servants etc. Yea, a disgrace.

Other than Trump, it's hard for me to think of someone I actually hate. I legitimately hate him.

And fuck his mile race.

i've learned about soo many people who were insanely fast in this area, it's crazy.

i mean this one old schooler even wrote this:

Quote
In 1996 I ran 16;44 and didn't even finish in the top 3 in my age group even after they took out the top 3 overall and top 3 masters. There wasn't as many races back then, so the quality showed up at the fast races. The heart run 10 k from holiday park was another super fast race from 1977 - mid 1985 there would be 5 guys sub 30.

5 guys sub30 for 10k.. wtf?
