Sometimes in life challenges rise up to meet you in ways never previously addressed. Confronting those challenges builds courage and determination, not to mention the ability to acknowledge stupidity and ignorance. Without looking failure straight in the face one might never truly understand success.

Thus, on this coming Monday at 1:30pm PST I will try to run a 5 minute mile on Hayward Field in Eugene, OR.

I will use this as my inspiration.

Wish me luck!

What's the live feed URL? I at least want one of the boys tweeting lap by lap progress. Good luck.

AJW, run like your chasing a fat redhead downhill! Seriously, rip 'er up.

I was thinking about your pending attempt when I was running down a 500'+ loss per mile road hill earlier this week. I wouldn't even be close these days!

Aww, where's all the pre-race coverage? Predictions? Analysis of your training? Insight into your racing plan and strategy? C'mon, get us pumped up! :)
Well, I'll be expecting all that in the post-race coverage. Plus video.
Good luck!

RUN LIKE THE COPS ARE CHASING YOU! I'm sure you'll post results, at least I'm sure Craig will!

Seeing the jubilation in you in that video after you finished that 17:20 is something I will not soon forget.

I have watched the video a few times now, every few days. That IS something unforgettable and terrific. Thanks for sharing that with us.

We should all have such a performance (relative to our own personal talent levels, of course. Obviously I and many others will never run that fast) at least once in our ultra running lives.

You can see you are just your boys' hero, in that video. They are following you around at every step.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Andy.
