Tomorrow will be off and travel. I won't get to my hotel until after midnight, but I won't have to leave my hotel until 11ish. I'll go hang out at the track well before my prelim race at 3:10. I'd like to see the M55 800m final at 1:10 since 4 of my best competitors are in this race. Should be a good race. I hope we do have a prelim. If history holds consistent, there won't be a prelim due to scratches but somehow I think this yr will be different. I think we will have a prelim, unlike LSU, it's an 8 lane track not a 9 lane. (At world regionals last yr in Toronto, we had to run a prelim to eliminate one person, since there were 9). Anyway, want to see my friends and do a nice long warmup. It's nice to have a prelim to get a feel for the track and see who's in shape. I like that there is an indoor warmup area since it will be in the 90ºs with no shade.
Kermitt just posted a 55.9 in Masters Rankings, first M55 this yr to break 56, and another Brit a 56.2, which gives the top 3 ranked M55 400m all to the UK. All 3 will be in Spain. It sure would be nice to better my 56.65 time, win or lose in this race. This bumps me to 5th, still US #1.
