NJ International Meet - this Saturday, prize $$$

I just got a message from the NYU coach that there is a meet this Saturday, June 18th, in Holmdel, NJ. I'm sharing the information in case anyone is looking to race - according to him, "meet is not huge, kinda last chance for 'whoever' wants one. Some HS, some college and people on usatf bubble. men and women 800 is loaded, m1500 should be decent."

This is a great meet - I didn't realize it was this weekend so since I'll be home, I'll probably stop by. IF anyone happened to be interested in racing, you can stay at my house. The host hotel is actually a half mile away from my house, the track is about 10 minutes.

I met Rich Kenah there once.

Closest I've ever come to these minimum standards:
- long jump: 6.32m
- 200 1.0x second too slow
- 100 0.51 seconds too slow

That was all 14 years ago in my rookie senior (only year) of T&F... Now I'm fatter and slower

Good luck to all you warriors!

So I went to the meet tonight, it was pretty sweet. There was NO wind at all, but the air was pretty heavy. Women's 800 was interesting, I guess just the one girl hit the standard for US Nationals (she ran 2:03.98). She led from the gun, actually outpacing the rabbit, coming through in 60, then 90 at 600. She struggled in the last 200 but held on to get under 2:05.

In the men's 1500, there were two dudes in 3:43.

Women's 1500 featured Carmen Douma-Hassar of Canada (who we saw at Swarthmore) who won fairly easily.

All in all, a quietly fun night of track.
