  • So who's gonna run at the Card Invite Friday?

    Let's get those rumors mixed up with facts before the start sheets come out.
    Here's an interesting non-distance one: Jeff Faurudo of the East Bay papers (Oakland,Hayward,Fremont,Tri-Valley,etc.) said in his column that Boris Henry, the great German javelin thrower and (still?) beau of Kelli White, might show up at Stanford.Maybe Kelli will run.

    No start lists up yet, but here's a link to an article by Chronicle writer (and one of if not the best track beat reporters of any daily in the country) John Crumpacker, in which he lists some of the athletes scheduled to compete.

      There's no javelin scheduled for this Friday, according to the meet schedule on the Stanford website.

        I've received word from his agent that Daniel Lincoln is running the 5K. Apparently, so is Alistair Cragg.

          A T&FN source close to Ritzenhein provided the following:

          Ritzenhein plans to try for an Olympic A 10K on Friday at
          Stanford; so would need a 27:49.00;

          and it's Ritz's first tack 10K ever;

          then he jumps right on a plane to fly to Norman, OK, to run the big 12 5000 on Saturday afternooon.

            Why?

            Prioritize -- what's more important: getting an Olympic A standard or a Big XII title?

              Oly A Q. Does anyone know where on the Stanford web site where the meet schedule is? I poked around, and can't even find a starting time for the meet.

                    Ritzenhein plans

                    They forgot to mention his plans for Sunday - to see his Dr. for diagnosis of the reoccurance of leg pain.

                    I'm sure he's thinking the 5k will not be a problem. But, come on, if he runs that well in the 10 he needs a bit more recovery than 12 hours. But, you know - its a team thing, and don't forget who is paying the tuition!

                        Actually, they forgot to mention his real plans for Sunday: to meet with the CU AD and discuss why he didn:t run conference fresh instead of fooling around with some open race on the coast! Kidding aside, he has his conflicting priorities, and is meeting his obligation to himself to get into a good race, and to his team in helping to win conference.

                          Yes, but isn't this the problem facing our elite collegiate distance guys? It is a sacrifice of self and ultimately full potential for the good of the team and a collegiate education. But, we've been here before - just another example. That is why the A.W. experiment is so interesting.

                            It would be worse if he were to do it in reverse.

                              I agree wholeheartedly with both of you.
