It's going to be an exciting night at the Armory in New York on Saturday as Hilary, Witty, and Sean set out to rewrite the GRC recordbooks in the 3000 at the Columbia Last Chance meet. Sean was originally entered in the 5000, but it turns out that Oregon Track Club's A team of Olympians and American Record holders is running the 5k in an attempt to obtain the World Championships qualifying time. Sean selflessly agreed to run the 3k instead in his final tuneup for the World Military Cross Country Championships in Serbia on March 16. Good luck to all!
Please take a few minutes to enter your schedule on the GRC spreadsheet. It's important that you all do this for a number of reasons, including so that I have up to date information when I enter folks in track meets, and request comps for road races. If you want to discuss potential races, feel free to give me a shout. Putting your name on the spreadsheet does not etch your participation in stone, and you will be free to make adjustments to your schedule as needed, but for now, it's a helpful tool.
Speaking of comp entries, our friends at Pacers have generously offered comps for the St Patricks Day 8k in DC on March 10. If you want to be considered for a comp, please let me know right away. There is a team competition with a cash prize, so if you're on the fence about which of the St Paddys day races to run, I'll nudge you in the direction of the 8k.
We'll be at BCC on Saturday morning for a 10:00 start, so meet for the warmup at 9:15. I'll send details about the specifics of the workout shortly.
See you Saturday.
