A.M. Today I proved that I am only 18 years old biologically in spite of being 37 chronologically. Jeff and I did another time trial. He ran 1000 and I did the last 800 with him. I repeated my record of 2:12 from the time I was 18. More precisely, the time today was 2:12.3, and I do not recall the tenths of a second on my 18 year old time, and am not even sure if I ever knew them.
We did it on the BYU track. It was somewhat windy, too windy for records, but being tucked behind Jeff helped a lot. The splits were 32, 32, 34, 34. I was able to stay with Jeff until the last 70 meters, and he put about a second gap on me. My legs worked a whole lot better in the second lap than in the last time trial two weeks ago. The first lap felt more or less the same. Total distance for the run was 10 miles as usual. Then I added 2 more with Benjamin in 16:29.
Tonight we will have my 18th birthday celebration dinner. I do, however, have a few things that do not go with being 18. Where did the six children and a pregnant wife come from? OK, an 18 year old could have six children, but not from the same woman, and not with the oldest being 11. Another thing that is odd is that when I tell jokes I have to give a rather lengthy history lesson so that people that are chronologically 18 would understand them.
Jenny and Julia ran 2.
P.M. Benjamin took Jacob and Joseph separately for 0.5 mile run each.
