5 mile easy run

I ran 5 miles easy this Mother's Day morning in around 38 minutes (about 7:45 avg pace). It was another great morning. I hope this weather sticks around a while. Total weekend mileage=16. My legs felt the best that they have in 3 weeks, so no crazy stuff for a while. I am thinking possible mile time trial over Memorial Day weekend though.

My buddy Ron Gallagher PR'd at the Santa Barbara Wine Country Half Marathon on Saturday. He ran 2:10:15. He was hoping to break 2 hours. I guess the course was more hilly than expected. Congratulations on the PR Ron! Now you have to pick a flat course to run fast on. I hear the Fontana Half Marathon on June 6th is one of the fastest around!

The Oregon Ducks distance team broke a collegiate record in the 4x1 mile relay this weekend. That race is not run too often, but with a super star team including Olympians Galen Rupp and Andrew Wheating they couldn't resist breaking another record. They ran 16:03! You do the math on that one! Three out of four guys ran sub 4 minute miles! See the post race interviews here.
