Ok, I’ll get it started. Are the good old days gone? This thread (which has not existed until I hit “submit new thread” would have been 3 or 4 pages long by now.
I have an outside chance to be up there, and if I can, I’m pretty pumped about the boys AAA 1600. 11 guys within 5 seconds of each other:eek: That will be one heck of a final lap. Who goes out early to make sure it does not end up in a kick? Who holds back knowing they can take the field in the last 200? Or do all 11 go balls to the walls and the final 100m becomes the ugliest/survival of the fittest finish of all time, with guys laying all over the place just a few short feet past the finish line?
This I do know: Iberg and Dixon ran a pedestrian first 200m in their sectional, both taking the lead shortly after, coming through 400m in 70.xx (4:40 pace). The pace slowly ramped up… and then…POW!!! The final 1000m was ridiculous. It was like one long kick to the finish. I was shocked that they handled that steep of a pace, without either one breaking. It makes me wonder which one of them can hold that pace longer… and who in TN will stay with that???
I sure hope I can make it for that final.
