We ducked out early this morning ahead of the blustery and rainy storm. Just an easy shakeout before tomorrow's xc race.
After checking the "free" nbc_marathon trials stream we were out the door to run Saturday morning errands. The "free" feed did show up but it was about the size of something I would watch on my cellphone, small.
2pm show was okay, then again, how much can you pack in to 30 minutes. Congratulations to Ryan Hall (2:09), Dathan Ritzenheim (2:11) and Brian Sell (2:11). I am totally impressed with one of our local favorites, Nate Jenkins (2:14) finishing 7th, one ahead of silver medalist Meb Keflizighi.
Our deepest condolences go out to Ryan Shay's wife Alicia and family. Absolutely unbelievable tragic collapse at 5.5 miles into the race.
Training: 4 miles in 30:15
