Bannister Mile

We ran the Bannister Mile today in my running group. An annual event in early may where we run to Manual Track (2 Miles), Then run a mile all out, group start on the track. We've been doing this for a few years now. Anyway it's a lot of fun and you get to see how fast you can run a mile on that day. We had 14 runners this year.

I did a 5:44. About 9 seconds slower than last year, but about where I thought I was for now.

The results for our group are posted on the prostates web site.

I ran pretty good, I felt good the whole way. A couple of times I felt myself relax into a 5k pace and had to remind myself it was only a mile so Push! For whatever reason I did not get my lap splits, but I think I was around 82, 250, 420, and then 5:44. It was fun. Craig Murray was breathing on my neck as we finished the last 100.

A bit windy on the north end curve. It was interesting to see where everyone finished. Tom and Craig were dead even with a photo finish. Fun watching Matt and Scott ahead of me. And Chris is an animal, he beats me every year by about 4 seconds.

Mark brought a camera so we got some good pictures this year.

Then we did a 8X200 relay, our team won, Matt ran 2 legs. We did a 4:12, fast but a ways off the 4:00 goal mark. The other team was about 4:30.

Then the 2 mile run back to the Y, recanting the race stories as we go.

Fun Day.

5.5 Miles
