Here are the Kentucky High School State Meet Results. South Oldham High School (Oldham Country) is in the biggest division.

Boys results: http://khsaa.org/cross_country/2013/cla ... esults.htm

Girls results: http://khsaa.org/cross_country/2013/cla ... esults.htm

Below is Coach Clarks' recap of the race/results for his teams:

"The state meet did not set up for fast times.  The course was damp, it was windy, and on the warm side.

The single A, followed by AA than we went,AAA.  I knew from the earlier races that times were running slow.  That those who hit their normal mile split times were loosing about 20 seconds in the second mile, than surviving to the finish with little passing going on in the tough last mile.

In AAA, 16 boys were figured to break 16.  The twins were ranked 12th and 15th.  I sent the boys out with the goal of not hitting a fast first mile, but a mile close to average pace planned.  The twins came through the mile in 5:10 in a pack around 20th.  Leaders were 5.01.  5 in the race had run sub 15:30 this year.  By two mile, the twins were 9th and tenth with a 10:22.  The leaders were 10:07.    Only one guy broke 16, barely.  The twins moved up to 5th and 6th with a 16:22.  Team wise, two of our runners went out a little slower than expected, 5:40, but hit 5:40 second mile, and in the last mile moved up over 50 spots running a 5:42.  Team wise we finished 6th when we were projected 11th.  We beat 4 teams that we had not defeated this year.  Individually, the twins finished ahead of several guys that they had been behind in prior races this year.  Only the 4 in front of them had faster times for the day.  The top three were seniors, the junior right in front of them by 6 seconds.  For sophomores, they were 13 seconds faster than the next sophomore.


The girls ran their best team race of the season.  Great performances to solid ones.  The region took it out of a couple of them, so they were not ready to pop that great race.  Our top girl, a freshman, was 16th with a 19.32.  Based on her region performance, probably should have been 9th, but went out fast, and lost a little pace the whole way, even though she went from 35th at the mile, to 22 at two mile.  She was 15th with 50 meters to go, but could not hold the place.  The girls finished 7th as a team.  I thought 6th was the best we could do.  We defeated three teams we had not previously beaten this year."

Andrew Duncan, age 46, placed 2nd overall in the Las Vegas Marathon on Sunday, November 17, 2013. The winner (age 28) was just 9 seconds ahead of Andrew. Andrew used many of the workouts that I created in past years for him this year, up through August, and I coached him again in the last few weeks before the marathon. I predicted 2:36 for him, based on workouts, but he ran 2:35:35. I haven't spoken with him yet, so I don't know if the weather was good or not. He's a big-time federal prosecutor, so he's crazy busy with work. For those of you who think you can't train and compete at a high level if you have a busy work and family life, Andrew proves over and over that it can be done. He runs at 5:00 am each day because he has a busy work day as a prosecution lawyer and has a young family at home that adores him and wants to spend time with him after work.

I communicated with Andrew last night, who is busy with a big trial case, and he said that he ran shoulder to shoulder down the "strip", which is the main road that passes the big Casinos in Vegas, with the 28 year old man who won. He was proud of his performance and gave it all he had. The younger guy just had more power at the end of the race. Considering that Andrew is 18 years older than the other fellow, I'd say Andrew performed remarkably well.

I am happy for Andrew, who deserves the success he enjoys! :)

To the runners I coach, if you see this message, please send me information about the races you have run that I have not described here. Admittedly, I could do a better job of publishing your results. I am so used to having the runners I coach set personal records/bests and doing well that I don't always remember to make sure I share the results with our community members.

Recent personal bests:  Phil Young, Kristoffer Johannsen, and Ganesh Murthy in the half-marathon. Jenia V. ran a PR (personal record) for the 10k in Boulder, CO. He gets to have both sea-level and "altitude" records, since the air pressure is so low that times in Colorado are compromised by 3-4%. Note, for those of you who are curious about the quotations around the word altitude; I used the quotes because technically altitude is how far off the ground you are. Being an old Air Force guy I am familiar with the difference and usually speak of performances for runners as being related sea-level of elevation, which is the correct term for running in the low pressure air of places like Colorado. You don't see "altitude" on the city limit signs (at the edge of cities); you see something like 5,4000 feet elevation on the sign when you drive into Boulder, Colorado.

Have a great day!

Several runners that I coach have raced well this winter. Ron Kochaniwicz, Jenia V., and several high school runners, one of whom just one the Massachusettes state 2-mile (indoor) championship have run fast times and been at the top of the heap.

Ron ran a really good 1-mile performance against college age men half his age. Ron ran wide in the race, as he tried to be in the mix of the front bunch, so his 4:36 high time wa probably more like 4:34 low, in my opinion.

I wish I had more time to share the details of the performances of the runners that I coach. I am proud of them for their dedication, their competitiveness, and their efforts to improve themselves. It's an honor for me to be associated with them!

By the Andrew Duncan emailed to say that he was very happy about his performance yesterday at the USATF 8km Road Race Championships. He placed 3rd overall (he's age 46, soon 47), and he ran 25:50. His age grade result is 90.89%. Below is the USATF age-grade calculator link.

http://www.usatf.org/statistics/calculators/ageGrading/

I don't have the link to the results of Andrew's race yet. If anyone finds the results, please share them on this thread. Thank you!

Here is the link to Ron's 1-mile race (it's a full mile, not 1600m). His time was 4:36.64, but as I said I think he lost 2 seconds on his time by running wide during the race, as he worked dilligently on being competitive and "in-the-mix" of the race. I admire his competitive drive!

Ron Kochanowicz is in the white shirt/singlet and black shorts. He runs very upright. He started in the first position. He has sandy blonde hair. Literally, he's twice the age of the other runners in that race. Way to go Ron!

Andew Duncan, whom I coach, sent me an email about the USATF National 8km Road Race Championships race that occurred two days ago (on the 23rd of February, 2014). He said I could share the following with our community at The Run Zone (these are his words):

I went out with the two leaders, but I thought the pace was too fast for me and they dropped me at the first hill.  I was then running with the two runners I would run with for the next several miles --- John Gardiner and Jaime Heilpern. The first mile was fast --- about 4:59. I tucked in behind the other two runners and hit mile 2 in about 10:20. Mile 3 was a bear. A big uphill. Stayed with the two other runners and hit the three mile mark in about 15:55. I was surprised at how I handled the hill---no problem. Mile 4 was a farily steep downhill and we ran it in about 5:00. Just prior to the 4 mile mark I decided to try and make a move.  The fifth mile was downhill for about 700m, then went up for 500m, and then finished with a final downhill 400m. I just kept pushing the final mile until I couldn't hear anything behind me. I had a great last mile --- all of the stamina and endurance training paid off.

I was thrilled to see the clock still in the 25s as I approached the finish line. Officially I finished in 25:50.  The last mile was just a bit above 5:00.  The course was fairly difficult, but conditions were perfect. 51 masters men broke 30:00 ---I think that is very impressive.   

Overall this was a great race I would recommend to other masters.  It was well organized, started on time, had accurate mile markers, had a fast and accurate timing system, and a great post-race food court.


Results are here:  http://results.active.com/events/23rd-a ... -brea-mall
