2017 Spring, Week Eleven, Day 6, Indoor Season/Winter Training, 800 meters to 5000 meters

| 0 Comments

Last night, I went to the Stanford Invitational. On Friday evening, they have distance races. So, sit down at the 100 meter start with some friends, and we talk track and watch races. After the first set of 10,000 meters, I ventured down the track and watched the final two 10,000 meter races. I met a former top runner I ran against thirty years ago, and met his daughter and friends, who were there cheering on their team! It was fun to catch up and see new and old friends.
