Can't Get Enough

In what was likely the last weekend of indoor racing for our guys, Greg Jubb and Louis Foudos were like Maverick and Goose, because they felt the need.  THE NEED FOR SPEED.  Greg won the 800m at the Princeton Invite after leading from the gun.  His time (1:53.23) was a 3.3 second improvement from just a few weeks ago at Maryland, and was a full 4 seconds clear of 2nd place.  Meanwhile, Louis' 2:02.76 was a 4 second indoor PR, and within a second of his all-time best.  Appropriately, Greg earned this week's Purple Drink Athlete of the Week, and Louis earned the NOS Award.

Out in Ohio, Dustin Meeker was hoping to improve upon last year's 15:45 at the Kent State Tune Up Meet.  But, he found out the hard way that a lot of running at 5:20 pace is good for marathon training, but not great when one needs to run 5 minute pace for 3.1 grueling miles around an oval inside.  Still, Dusty crossed the line with a 16:11.26, and on heavy legs, I'm sure he'll "dust" himself off and get back for this weekend.

Speaking of this weekend, according to C-Rad, there's some kind of big race.  Maybe you've heard of it.  It's called Club Challenge, and it's only the most important race in the world.  Psyche.  That honor belongs to the RM Classic.  Psyche again!  That would actually be the Arjun Majumdar Birthday Mile.  I sent an email to those of you who are registered for the event with some information pertaining to logistics, so please read it all the way through.  In an effort to not share our secrets with the world, the blog will be void of Club Challenge related material until after the race.  I also noticed that I made a few errors when I split everyone up for our squad scrimmage, so I have made the appropriate adjustments and will let everyone know their revised teams.

Today is Fat Tuesday, so in honor of the day, we will be rolling dice at the track tonight to determine our workout.  Unfortunately, I'm quite under the weather and will not be running, but I should be able to make it up there.
