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.
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
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?
