|Subject: ||RE: Masters Weekend Runs and Races|
some fast masters times in the 5k at ben brown last night--ken ernst crushed the 50-54 national age group record by 7 seconds, running 15:34, while teammate jeff ambos came close to the former record with a 15:45. host cal state fullerton even gives ken props on their website as the meet hightlight--pretty cool they acknowledge the old guys:
for my part i registered two dnfs. after an 11 hour day at a track meet, i had only planned to pace a former athlete currently at orange coast junior college thru 8-10 laps of 69s. we managed a 4:36 through 4 laps, but first 3 were in lanes 2-3, then 9:16 through 3200 before i peeled off; i was beat. came back about an hour later and planned on helping ken if he needed it, but he had a good pack to run with, so i paced a few other compex teammates through 10:05, took ambos through 12 laps, and dropped out since we had worked our way up to a pack that i figured would carry him the rest of the way. a good workout for me overall--anxious and excited at the prospect of running a 1500 this friday at occidental college...
