Sam Luff continues his stellar spring campaign with a sub 25 minute 5 miler this morning at the Germantown 5 Miler. Luff broke away from the pack with an Ethiopian and Will Christian (formerly of Navy). "The three of us pressed for four miles together. Just past mile four, the Ethiopian and Christian surged and i was not able to bridge the gap." Karl Dusen and Texas Ranger Paul Guevara had off days however with the race serving as a tempo/progression, they certainly got a nice workout in.
The Ivy-Tex trio will return to battle on Saturday June 18th at the Grandmas Half Marathon in Duluth Minnesota. The trio will take a crack at the qualifying time of sub 1:05.00 which will qualify for the 2012 USA Olympic Marathon Team Trials on January 14, 2012 in Houston Texas.
*Will was from UVA, now of the US Navy. He'll be joining the three of us again in Duluth for the Gary Bjorkland half.
