I would have said 13:35, but due to inside intel I'm gonna say 13:40.
Inside intel huh. I'll say 13:34. Would love to see him go in the 20s, but can't expect that when he's had two weeks off. I just hope he stays healthy.
13:38 - and it will be a damn good race for him if he runs that.
i'd say anything under 13:50 is a good sign considering the circumstances
but it please everyone
i'm gonna say 13:38.24
If he runs 13:38 it'll be a damn good race for Derrick, as he would most likely beat him with that time. But I just don't think Fernandez would let that happen without an epic fight. So I still think both will be under the AJR.
I think Chelanga will go for the CR and just miss it, maybe 13:09 to 13:12.
DAMN HE JUST RAN A 13:21!!!!!!!
My prediction is 13:18. I think he can run much faster but will be surprised if he runs faster than this time tonight.

13:35, no faster guaranteed.
13.33, with last 600 (~1.26-28ish) drive to win.
men's 5k 3rd heat - 13:54
What a great race, Chris Derrick in 2nd, 13:28 new U.S. Junior Record! German Fernandez in 4th. I was felt Derrick had a 50/50 chance to beat German today and he did.
Wow nice running Derrick! :)
Tonight, the WCCC, and the cross nationals last fall show the trend.
13:31.78 for Fernandez, 13:29.98 for Derrick.
1. Mead Minnesota 13:28.45
2. Jager Oregon Track 13:29.65
3. Derrick Stanford 13:29.98
4. Fernandez, Okla St 13:31.78
Great race for Hasan Mead, and great effort by Chris Derrick. German F. ran well but was owned by Derrick.
I knew Derrick was gonna be there. Now he can get some of the well-deserved spotlight. But man, 13:31 for first 5K ever is pretty sweet too. Faster than I predicted, given the fact that he had to take a couple weeks off. Awesome. Imagine what the times will be when these guys are seniors!
This was posted a few hours BEFORE the race. Impressive.
It is also impressive that if you ask a group of any idiots what they think, chances are when you average their estimates the result will be pretty close: 13:30.36
They all should be glad I was not in the race. How U doooooooooooooin!!!
