I notice that longtime RunCo race team nemesis Bert(the dagger)Rodriguez is running for Pacers on Sunday. Bert is one heck of a runner and you might say he is Haile G and Jake is Paul Tergat in their running rivalry. Bert has a vicious kick and though does not race much, when he does, its for the win.

That is some great incentive for our new teammates!!
Actually, about a year ago when I was VERY bored, and after a bet with Bert, I went back and totaled all the cumulative time I had beaten Bert in races, and the total cumulative time Bert had beaten me. The end verdict was that I had him by a meager 4 seconds over the course of a 5-year rivalry. I sent this to stat to BErt but never heard back. Probably because he thinks I am stupid for doing it. I know he beat me by 4 seconds at CB last year and we haven't raced since then, so we might be at an even 0 now. Also, all of our PRs from 5k to 10 miles are within a few seconds. I am not trying to prove anything by stating all this, I just found it very interesting.
