THIS THANKSGIVING I RAN THE ASHENFELTER 8K CLASSIC. THE RACE TOOK PLACE IN GLEN RIDGE, NJ. I WANTED TO FINISH IN UNDER 40 MINUTES. HAPPY TO SAY I DID JUST THAT, COMING IN AT 38:31. WHAT I'M EVEN HAPPIER ABOUT WERE MY SPLITS. I SUCCESSFULLY PROGRESSED AS THE RACE WENT ON AND HELD PACE FOR THE FULL 5 MILES. I FORGET HOW IMPORTANT RUNNING SHORTER DISTANCES IS FOR RUNNING LONGER DISTANCES. 

MILE 1: 8'08", MILE 2: 7'39", MILE 3: 7'31", MILE 4: 7'29", LAST .95 MILE: 7'29"

IT WAS A PERFECTLY CRISP MORNING FOR A RUN WHICH I GOT TO SHARE WITH 3,000 STRANGERS. SHOUT OUT TO JIM WHO GAVE ME A QUICK LIFT BACK TO MY CAR AND TO THE MAN AND HIS 9 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER WHO RAN IN FRONT OF ME THE ENTIRE RACE. YOU TWO WERE ADORABLE!
