RE: Frank Meza 2:53:10 at LA Marathon (70 years old) unoffical time (just finished)
RP, I've run the chinatown firecracker race that you linked for Mr Meza's 10K result. Just fyi, in case you've never run in, that is a SLOOOOOW course. I'd say it runs at least 1:30 slow for a 30min guy, and upwards of 2:00-2:30 slow for a 40min guy.
point is, your best performance is NOT going to come at that race, period. I have been fifty-fifty about whether I lean one way or the other... but, having done that chinatown race, the fact that he has his one supportive performance on THAT course is troubling- as is a host of other evidence in this thread. Real bummer because I wanted to be encouraged that it's possible to run like Ed W as we get older...
