Does this camera make me look fast? (That's me in the yellow)
4:51.38. That's all I had. After a long 2 days at the BYU High School Indoor meet in Provo they let the coaches lace them up and test their speed on the 5-laps to the mile Mondo-X track in the Smith Fieldhouse. I always enjoy a change of pace and 1600 meters is pretty much red-lining it for me anymore. Last year the record holder paced his wife and I won with a measly 5:04. This year, despite Corbin's sandbagging I knew that it would take a much faster race to defend my title. I didn't get a very clean start so I used too much energy on the first lap before settling into the race. I continued to close on second place but wasn't able to catch him. The winner ran 4:39. I'm way ahead of where I was at this time last year and if I can recover well from the Moab Red Hot 50k+, I'll have a good shot at breaking 4:40 a week later at the Simplot Games.
El Vaquero Loco 2014 - Thanks for making this year's race such a success.
11th annual. Saturday, August 8th, 2015. Out and back course on nearly 100% singletrack. Beautiful vistas. Very tough and technical. It has been our experience that you run the 25k if you are not used to running technical trails at altitude.
