I wasn't going to post anything on this race but my good friend and running rockstar Corbin Talley just sent me a photo so I thought I'd give everyone an update. I am up to my eyeballs in work and training right now but I decided to jump in the coach's mile at our first indoor meet in Provo. Last year I ran 4:51 off of a lot of speed work and focus on running fast. This year I am taking a little different approach to training, trying to log more miles and take care of some strength imbalances so I can be ready for Coyote 2 Moon this March. Nacho Delgado wants to be fit enough to enjoy running 100 miles along with all the other goofy activities that will go on that week.
Needless to say I charged out hard, maybe a little too fast with Brad Barton hot on my heels. He made a big move with one lap to go and absolutely handed it to me on the last 350 meters. I did the Russian-Bear-Dance for the last lap but still managed to sneak in under 5 minutes. The most amazing performance of the day was by our throwing coach, Josh Henderson who is the 1993 Wyoming 4A State Shot Put Champion and former co-columnist for "The Three Fat Guys." Josh has dropped some serious weight and some serious time off his mile PR by running 6:29.07. No too shabby for a man with 12 children. Nice work buddy.
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.
