Bill Moos did the U of O and Eugene a great service when he created the position for Vin Lalana!
I'm guessing you are pleased with your 5K from Saturday?  Saw you were right at 9 min. mile pace.  Congrats!

Sorry I missed you on Saturday. I had a little window between commitments and I was thinking about trying to get out to the meet but I started doing the To Dos and the window closed. Too bad, 'cause my Ducks were bringing a Quack Attack to town, I hear.

Hope to hear the details when I next jog with the group.

Be well,

The meet is at Dempsey Arena on the UW campus Dianne.
The softball field is attached just to the NE of the blown up Husky Stadium.
Dempsey is just to the north of the softball field along Lake Washington.
Behind (East) of Bank of America Arena and the pool. 
South of the Nordstrom Tennis Center and Baseball stadium.

Here is a link to info about Dempsey:
http://www.gohuskies.com/dempseyindoor/

I will be there from about 3 until 5:30 or 6.  Give me a call at [masked] if you make it and want to track (pun intended!) me down.

The next Discovery run will be March 4th.
Redtown is a favorite of Jen and Michael but we have not started a run from there yet.  Will add it to the list!

As far as duffers on Wed.!  I can always work out something that is manageable and useful for those that are a bit slower.  Less distance, more rest, etc.  We have tended to always have a few 9-10 minute paced 5K runners (Richard, Stephanie, Tara, Hong and one or two others more inconsistently) showing up each week.  Lately it has been a bit barren for this group.  Will be working on building this up if there is interest!  Kelli had mentioned interest.  Richard has been more regular lately and I'd guess we can rustle up a few others if we put some energy into it!

I've added your phone # to my address list and will check in if needed.  Hope to see you on one of our meetups soon and you are awesome!

Why is it that hardly anybody goes to play football on Saturday, but most everyone will tune in for the College games on Saturday or the NFL games on Sunday?

Why is it that 3,000 people will pay upwards of $50 to go run around Green Lake on February 11th, but few will be aware that one of the premier indoor track and field meets in the United States will be held just minutes awaya few hours later?  And only a few handfuls of those participants will show up to watch?

Want to become a fan of the sport you love to participate in? 

See what you are missing!
The Husky Classic begins today with multi-events and tonight with Invite 5K's and DMR's.  Concludes tomorrow with the window of opportunity being from 3:00 until 6:00 for the elite races.
Completely FREE!

Meet Record Holders include Jenny Simpson (Barringer), Nick Symmonds, Lisa Uhl (Koll), Mary Sauer, Grace Upshaw, Erica McLain, Andrew Wheating, Chris Solinsky, David McNeil, Jesse Williams, Toby Stevenson, Norris Fredrick and Ryan Whitting.

Non Meet Record holders that have participated in the past that are Olympians, World Championship competitors (or Champions!) and World Record Holders include (just those I remember off the top of my head!):
Will Lear, Matt Scherer, Galen Rupp, Ryan Hall, Alan Webb, Adam Goucher, Brad Walker, Ryan Brown, Ashton Eaton, Dawn Harper, Gabe Jennings, Ginny Crawford (Powell), German Fernandez, Michelle Perry, Sharon Day.


Being an Olympic year this could help you enjoy the participants leading up to selecting our US team and watching the Games from London.

What is the event like?:
http://www.flotrack.org/coverage/247834-2012-Flotrack-Husky-Classic/video/457834-Dempsey-Throwback-M-3k-H06-live-Nelson-749

3rd place finisher Matt Centrowitz went on to  win the outdoor NCAA 1500, make the US World Championship team and become the first American in ?? years to to compete in the Final AND win the bronze medal, finishing 3rd!  Centrowitz will be running at the Milrose Games this year, but in turning pro has left former Nathan Hale athlete Abdi Hasan as the top finisher from last years NCAA 1500 returning this year.  Look for last years seventh place finisher in this event, Diego Estrada, to break out tomorrow!
The Elite 5K's will be run tonight between 5:15 and 6:15.

Women's 5K could be really fun!  Kipyego and Hassay should push the pace which could help a very deep field of collegians try to get the NCAA auto mark of 15:57.0.    Don't look for Kipyego to shoot for the Dempsey record of 15:01.70 as my guesswould be that she will run this at tempo effort to win and do the same in the mile tomorrow, working on her closing speed while tired.  Look forward to seeing how former Michigan high school star Meghan Goethels runs, as she seems to be gaining momentum collegiately.
Other top NCAA XC finishers Bergman, Maeir, Kosinski, others? to jump on the train to get that 15:57 mark.  For you local road racers that did the Seattle 1/2 marathon look to see how Women's winner Brownwyn Crossman fares.

The 5,000 meters is ALWAYS the premier event run indoors in the United States at the Husky Classic.  The field doesn't look stacked, but with as many surprises as in past years
this could still include a boatload of sub 14 minute performances.  Last year 24 (or was it 25?) cracked that barrier from all flights.  It may take a few miracles for that to happen
this year, but you will still see incredible efforts to either get the NCAA auto of 13:47 or a mark that generally will get you in (13:55ish).  A handfull of former Washington High Schoolers in the Invite section of 18 runners with Hassan Mead, Chris Kwiatkoski, Jake Riley, Miles Unterrainer and former Metro Leager Mike Kilburg.
Along with Lalang, another of Abdi's Arizona teammates will NOT be racing at this years Husky meet.  Stephen Sambo will ALSO be in New York running in the Milrose Games (Wanamaker Mile, I believe).  It would have been fun to see him in this field, but I'm sure there are bigger fish to fry!

Just In!!!!!!!!!  Haven't read it, but wonder if it's much like my above note, other than to say I guess Jordan Hassay plans to REALLY push the pace in the women's race as well as the OTC men in the men's!

Some thoughts on what to look for tomorrow between 3:00 and 6:00!

The Men's 800 meters has many entrants that I'm not real aware of, but with Lopez Lamong, Caz Loxsom and a guy who really broke outlast year, Kevin Hicks, this could be a fast race.  If not fast, then at least competitive!

The Men's mile may see more than the 7 (or 8?) top finishers under 4:00 this year.  Tegencamp, Jaeger, Hasan and Matusek should lead the field.  I'm looking forward to seeing how Mason McHenry does in moving up from his normal 800 meter distance.  If he has built some strength this could be someone with the talent to surprise.  The developmental flight is always fun as their tends to be more aggressive running and as many of the sub 4's can come from this flight.  At least a handful of entrants have the ability to do it!
As mentioned earlier, last years 7th fastest miler in the Husky Classic (3:59.??) currently has this years fastest time in the world indoors over the mile and will be running at the Milrose Games that evening instead of the Husky Classic. Here is Abdi pacing him through the first 1/2 two weeks ago in that race:

http://www.flotrack.org/video/590713-M-Mile-H01-Lawi-Lalang-35509-Razorback-Invite

Here is Abdi from two years ago.  Let's see how this year compares.  I believe Richard Zerbe still claims Salazar and Rupp ran 3:46 that day!

http://www.flotrack.org/coverage/236341-2010-University-of-Washington-Invitational/video/284200-M-mile-H03-35575-SolinskyRupp-UW-Invite

The men's 3K could be the event with the least depth of the distance races, but I'm interested to see what Diego Estrada does!  He loves to run from the front and is coming off of a tremendous mile at altitude a couple of weeks ago.  Additionally, the meet record is held by his former teammate at Northern Arizona, David McNeal, and he may decide to just do his own thing if no one is willing to race guttsy.  Estrada has also been developing tremendously through cross country season this past Fall.  Will not be the race that the afore mentioned 3,000 from last year will be, but again, it may be faster at the front with many trying to reach the 7:54:50 NCAA auto mark.

Women's 800 looks very deep.  Not sure what fitness level some of thes ladies are in, but they are all very accomplished runners!

Women's 1500 has Sally Kipyego in the field.  Malindi Elmore is very talented but not sure if the race will develop in such a way that she, or any of the young, but talented, collegians, will be able to run fast enough to keep up with Kipyego.  Could see some real breakout
races from some in this field though!

Women's 3K has Olympian Alice Schmidt doing some strength building and former NCAA 10K champ Lisa Uhl moving down for some faster racing.  Elmore may try the double as she is entered in both the 1500 and 3K.  Might be the weakest of the distance events.

If you have made it this far there may be a chance I will see you at the meet!!!!!   If not remember that track IS a GREAT spectator sport and we will be actually running (if that is more your style!) Sunday morning from the Leschi Startbucks:
