10 x 500, 5K pace with 300 rest

Hi Everyone. It's going to be warm and a bit wet tomorrow morning. No matter how you look at it, it won't be near as bad a what our fellow runners endured at the MCM this weekend so please come on out. It's a speed workout of 10 x 500 at 5K pace with 300 rest.
As always we will start at 6:00AM at the Yorktown High School track. Please be warmed before then and ready to go at 6.
At the inaugural MCM 50K Liz Ozeki ran an eye-popping 3:42:04 FTW in the OAF race. Liz was also 4th OA in the race and this was a 50K PR for her by 41 minutes. This comes on the back of her 2:54 marathon PR in Chicago 2 weeks earlier. TWe are all bowing to you Liz. Phenomenal work and congratulations on such well-earned and deserved success!!!

It was of course a tough day on the marathon and 50K course with buckets of rain and warm temps. The crew made the best of it with one PR and one first ever marathon ...

Registration is open for our annual Alexandria Turkey Trot 5M on Thanksgiving morning. It is a fabulously flat and fast 5M course if you want to burn off some calories early. It is also family friendly and a moving block party so bring all your visiting relatives whether they run or not. They can walk and make room for the Turkey. To register go to: https://www.alexandriaturkeytrot.com/. We also need lots and lots of volunteers. Please consider helping. Register to volunteer at: https://www.alexandriaturkeytrot.com/volunteer/

Big Guy is back in Austin this week. I look forward to seeing you in the morning.
