Cool Down

This morning was a workout with the local area all stars. We had the usual, Me, Sean, Luis, Dan, and Geoff. Local legend Joe Flores(who turned 50 and still runs a 16:30 5k) and Vaughn Gibbs(recent winner of the of the HMSA Classical 25k and local invited runner to the Houston Marathon) also showed up which was a welcome addition. It would be nice if we could get a few more local elite guys together for some training like we had this morning. Not only would it be nice to have similarly talented people to feed off of each other during the workouts. It would be a nice opportunity to fellowship and get to know each other better before we crush each others’ hopes and dreams in races during the year. Better yet maybe not… ;-)

I ran well for 12 of the 16 hill reps and then got called out by Joe for sandbagging :-P

Hey man thanks for stopping by. We started at 5:15am this past Tuesday and we met at Jackson Hill. We usually will meet on Tuesday's between 5:15 and 5:30am. If you have Sean's cell you can text him and ask him what time we'll start next week. Or I can post it here. You definitely are more than welcome to come to the workouts.
