Master fans,

64 year old Yoshihisa Hosaka didn't get the age 62 record as he ran 2:50:44, well off the 2:42:44 record he was hoping for and the 2:46:17 he ran earlier this year.

Why would a 64 year old be shooting for the age 62 record? Typo, or is there something about masters' records that I don't understand?

Ed was also faster than 60% of the entire male field.

Without looking it up, I'm guessing it's the 60-64 age group record, and the current record was set by a 62 year old.

Looks like he was going for the best for a 64-year-old, the 2:42:44 by Clive Davies. The list of age bests is here:

Yoshi is 64 and was going for the single age 64 record. Weather conditions were good but both Yoshi and I misjudged the pace for the fitness we had on the day and basically ran too fast early in the race. I had a really tough time over the last 5 k. We both ran about 10 minutes over what we thought we could do, although I did have more than usual doubts about the realism of my goal

Ed is a running hero, but it's kinda comforting to know he can make the same misjudgments about pace that I seem to make from time to time.

Congratulations, Ed. To miss your goal by 10 minutes and set a single age world record ain't bad!

Heh, I read the subject as a 1500 meter time at first. Was blown away.
