That's a nice run. You're improving quickly (as usual)!

Nice tune up. Looking forward to a strong 5k

Hey, how did it go?

From JG on Mon, Mar 25, 2019 at 14:01:26 from

Thanks Preston & Dan!

Tom, could not have been better ... I think my wild imagination makes me faster. Now I am thinking a stretch goal of sub 3 is not unreasonable on a course with 5,000' of drop ... as long as I can find some hills to run down! Lol. Actually my imagination is not that wild ... but maybe a 3:06:21 ... which would be a PR & likely get me in the 2020 10:00 wave! :)

From I Just Run on Mon, Mar 25, 2019 at 14:13:42 from

Hey JG, even if you do get in the 3:10 wave I'm coming to get you so don't look back!😁😁😁

From JG on Mon, Mar 25, 2019 at 14:37:44 from

Haha Preston, I would expect you to be right on my heels... or possibly me chasing you! Hopefully you will get in the 10:25 wave ... you might need to pick a fall marathon ... these standards make everything tougher ... see the wave cutoffs for 2019, they could be lower in 2020!
