Pretty cool. Got asked if I wanted to join the oldest/strongest running team in the area. Told them I need to figure stuff out first before I can join & i'd let them know several months down the road. They seemed like they understood completely & said the spot is mine when I want it.

As for figuring things out: I just want to be faster before I join a team (probably their team), and i'd like to beat most of the guys on there before I join. So, i'd probably join if I do all of that. It's got alot of history behind it, so why not? and I doubt i'd start my own team. I could keep running solo forever, or have an affiliation etc.. but, I just need to get on another level before I can join a team. Otherwise i'd be annoyed by it.

edit: also team perks: they pay/comp races, free shoes, free jerseys etc.. sooo. Beyond the honor of being on it & having strong teammates, perks :F If I get done what I plan to this year, i'd feel more comfortable joining & i'd probably be very happy about it. If I joined right now, i'd be stressed out by it.

hehe!

Taravella Athletics 5k:

1st OA

17:35 watch, 17:50 official

https://runsignup.com/Race/Results/56374/#resultSetId-116629

But can't find the results. Emailed the event organizer, they seem pretty amateur but have a "nice site". I can't find past results for any of their races this year. Eek....... They have people sign up through "runsignup", so they should be posting the results there. Once an event is done, it usually has a results link with the results right there on runsignup.

decent.

faster 5k tomorrow :D :ibrunning:

found out about a local meet coming up on May 18!!! what should I do? I have a mile race on May 20th.

i'm thinking 800m, 200m, 3200m? :D :ibrunning:





edit: or, how much do I care about a local mile race vs a track meet mile race? Maybe do 1600m, 200m? Kinda want to do a 3200m also though.

dammit!

fuck it! 1600, 200, 3200!!!!!!

I put 10:59 because I know i'm capable of that, and don't have a recent serious 2 miler.

ALL SYSTEMS GO!

see the pouty kid in the purple shirt with his mom behind him?

this stuff happens alot.. someone mentions her kid being up front, she says: "if he doesn't start up front he's going to be so angry at me". Then he goes in front of me. I tell her: "it's not safe for him to start up front", she gives me this look and is like "don't worry, he'll be fine". Then I say, "ok maybe he'll be fine but someone could get hurt trying to avoid running him over" .. no response. So anyway, I tell her "ok i'll start somewhere else, don't want to run over your child". Saw the kid as I was running back on the 2nd half of the 5k.. he wasn't even running it. He was just walking with this angry face, as if he was mad he couldn't win the race. I've seen this stuff alot, it's bad parenting. They need to give their children the rules of the game.. If this was some little phenom, who can fly, then it'd make some sense.

dno, I think the photo says it all though.

I guess you can compare it to the shirtless kid a few people over to his right .. that kid looks ready, and he's fast. Plus he's older.

race directors/event organizers do a terrible job at enforcing this stuff.

race day, again!

felt good waking up, but heavy. didn't weigh myself, was probably like 148 or something (retaining alot of water/food etc).

?taken-by=andrewdarqui

That milkshake was SO. DAMN. GOOD. especially after a 3 hour run. One of the best things about running for such a long time, is the sugar flood afterwards.. everything tastes incredible.

felt really good in the first mile. actually tried reigning it back a bit. still hit 5:22/5:24 one of the two. tried holding back a bit in anticipation of the hill coming up @ 1.5 and I just got dropped. They went up pretty strong, and down very fast. I was basically toast at this point. lol.

Did this course a few months ago @ 18:05 official / 17:40ish watch. I crushed the hill that day. Only thing i'm annoyed with today is how sh*t I went up/down the hill :D
