A.M. Ran with Jeff. We did 12.06 in 1:29:27. Ran into Seth, he joined us for a little bit. He is running the Utah Valley Marathon as well and was exploring the course. So it looks like it will be faster than Ogden. So far we have two Kenyans (William Tete and Ezekiel Ruto), Seth, Jeff McClellan, me, Kory, and Jeff Shadley.
Did 2.5 in 14:38 for a sort of marathon dress rehearsal and practiced trading leads.
Later took Benjamin to a track meet. He ran 6:04 in the 1500. It was windy, but still this shows we need to figure out what is going on. His splits were 1:30, 1:40, 1:39, last 300 in 1:15. So in essence he ran a good first lap and then was just stuck in 6:40 pace gear. He said he did not feel tired afterwards. That is not surprising since we do not run 6:00 pace in training very much. Maybe we should once a week or so, I do not want him to do it too much as he is still growing. He did win the Bantum division, although there were only two people in it. But he was competitive against older boys, all were in the same heat.
P.M. 2 with Jenny in 18:07. Julia ran the first 1.5 in 14:12.
