As you can see by my bar to the right, I do not have a mile PR. Why? I've never ran a mile! Well, I guess I've ran miles before. But never ONLY a mile - and never balls out as fast as I could.
I suppose that I could just go out to the track and run 4 laps. But, I'd need to recruit some people to cheer - and I would probably need my wife there, ready with 1/2 filled cups of water to splash on myself as I went wizzing by. Most importantly, I would need some sort of T-Shirt or medal that would say "I worked for 6 minutes and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt".
So, I stumbled (I had been drinking beer in the hotel) over to the Arizona Road Racers website and found what I thought to be a good race. Pat, who also lives in the area saw my post and happened to look up last year's race results. Here they are:
(Thanks to Ulyana for showing me how to do this!!)
So, like Pat said, I am SURE that I could give Kid #1 and Kid #2 a run for their lunch money.
Thank god he looked up the race results. I never would have thought of doing that. I would have paid the money and laid the smack down on some 7 year olds. Even if there was a fast 10 year old Kenyan there that day, I probably still would have thrown enough elbows to get an age group award.
