6 mile easy run (45:46)

Today was an easy 6 mile run to the end of 45th to go check out that hill that I want to run on Thursday. I clocked the hill, which starts out easy and gets steeper and steeper, at .25 miles. I think I can do about 6-7 repeats in 20 minutes. It takes about a 20 minute warm up to get there and 20 minutes home. Well see how much time I have.

Today's six miles took me 45:46 (about 7:30 pace).
I saw a parked yellow volkswagen with a Cal Lutheran licence plate frame on my run.

For those of you reading my blog on a daily basis, you remember reading about Jordan Hasay, a 16 year old from San Louis Obispo who ran the Olympic Trials 1500m and set a high school record. Well she wrapped up the World Junior Championships this weekend, made the final, and placed 4th, just missing a medal. I guess no U.S. runner has ever finished in the top 8 there, and this year we had two! Remember "junior" is anyone under 20 years old. Jordan is only 16! Read about her summer accomplishments here.

Remember Dan & Dave from Barcelona 1992? Here is a fun, "Where are they now?"

I got to meet Dan O'brien at Footlocker Cross Country Nationals in 1996 after he won the gold medal in the Decathalon. If I can find the picture I have with him, my coach Jeff Doyle and I, I will post it later.
