Chasing an Olympian

November 28, 2013 (Morning)

Exercise Type: Run

Weather: 25 breezy

Cleveland Turkey Trot. around 40th place 400m into the race because everyone was chasing Nate Brannen even though only Salukumbo had any business trying to chase. Moved up to 5th/6th with a guy from Rend Lake before 2 mile mark. Traction wasn't good. Bad fourth mile, splits - 5:14(downhill), 5:10(uphill), 5:15(flat), 5:33(flat), 5:07(flat); 6th place. Though I'm most pleased with how quick yet effortless I could kick the last 400m. The speed development is paying off, and I'm excited to hopefully post PRs in 800, 1500, 3k indoors! Happy Thanksgiving to anyone reading!!!

EDIT: I was wrong it wasn't Nate Brannen. He had tweeted last night, "Cleveland Turkey Trot!" so I figured the white guy that blasted off with Salukumbo at the start of the race was him. I stand corrected!
