Wednesday, May 18, 2011 - Race Reports
Paul Mach dot Pro Not much more to report, just ouch. Multiple copies of that. It was cool to descend Mt. Hamilton with closed roads though.

Tomorrow will prove to be an even more brutal day. First the start is at 9:45, 1.5 hours earlier than today, and the finish is scheduled for the same time. Add in a long morning transfer and you have an alarm set for 5:45.

In other news, my GNAC conference meet record in the 400 hurdles was broken on Saturday. 6 years on top, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with that. Still have the conference 800 meter record though. Yes, I check the records weekly for updates.

Here's another graph from Race Shape.com. What you're looking at is the time gaps between different riders/groups along the course.

Some people may call this a bit nerdy, but stats are a big part of every other sport (ever listened to a half time report?). While a small fraction obsesses over them, most people at least understand. My hope is one day a graph like this will reach that level.

I saw you on Sierra, you looked as though you are in the best form of your life. You are an outstanding athlete. Thanks for representing Norcal.
