Race #284 – Winter Flight 8k – Salisbury, NC – 02/08/15

2015-winter-flight-LOGOThe unseasonably warm 69-degree temperature at the start of this normally freezing race was perfect for me. This was the first year since I’ve been running that the Winter Flight 8k in Salisbury was held in the afternoon, and it’s a welcome change for me. This Sunday afternoon was 15-20 degrees warmer than normal and I loved it, although I heard one or two complaints from people who thought it was too hot.

Now in its 32nd year, the Winter Flight is the oldest 8k road race in North Carolina, and for a number of years it has been the RRCA state championship 8k road race, attracting fast runners of all ages from throughout the state and even drawing some great runners from other parts of the country at times.

There’s a small purse for the winner of $100, but a bonus of $750 for anyone who can break the course record, and a 21-year-old Kenyan who recently arrived in the US to become a professional runner named Eliud Ngetich (they call him “Heldy”) took on the challenge. He not only broke the course record but also the North Carolina state 8k record with a blazing time of 23:07 (a 4:39 pace)!

Old age-grouper that I am, I was more concerned about the 60+ crowd, and there were plenty of old fast guys in attendance, most notably Tom McCormack, the fastest runner in the United States over 60 years old. Last year he won five USATF national championships and became the first person over 60 to run a sub 17-minute 5k when he did it at the 5k national championship in Syracuse, New York. In this race he finished 5th overall with a time of 29:29 (5:56 pace) and told me after the race that he was a little disappointed because he was shooting for sub 29 minutes. Those are numbers that most of us mere humans over 60 can’t even imagine.

Despite being beat by three people over 60 years old I still managed to win the 60-64 age group after the dust settled, since Tom won Masters (40+) and the other two were in the 65-69 age group. My time of 36:36 made this the slowest 8k I’ve ever run but after the way things have gone over the last few months I wasn’t really surprised, nor was I particularly discouraged. No doubt I’ve slowed down some but I just hope to stay healthy and able to run, even if I’m a little slower every year.

I should mention that this is the same race where last year I and about 30 other runners took a wrong turn on the course and ran more than a mile out of the way before figuring out we were off course.  It was the result of a confusing sign and lack of volunteers at the turn where we went off course. This year the turn was clearly marked and several volunteers were on hand to be sure it didn’t happen again. All of those who turned the wrong way last year were offered a free entry into this year’s race, which was a great gesture by race director David Freeze and much appreciated by those of us who took advantage of the offer.

Race #276 – Spooky Sprint 5k – Salisbury, NC – 10/26/14

In the second of two races on the weekend just before Halloween, I revisited the Spooky Sprint 5k, a fun 5k that starts at Catawba College in Salisbury and finishes on the school track. It’s Rowan Rotary’s big fundraising event of the year and they do an outstanding job with it. A lot of runners come out all dressed up for Halloween and there’s a great kids fun run that’s part of the festivities. It’s one of the few races I know of in North Carolina that actually has Senior Grand Masters (ages 60+) awards in addition to Grand Masters (ages 50+) and Masters (40+) and most likely because of that there are a lot of older runners who participate. Last year and again this year I was fortunate to win Masters, so I’m sending out a big thank you to all the 40+ runners faster than me who didn’t show up!

The temperatures in late October at 2:30 in the afternoon (race time) would normally be in the mid-60s, but this was a near-record-breaking day with the thermometer hitting 83 degrees. I love warm temperatures and would prefer 83 over 38 anytime, but I’m like anybody else in being slowed down some by the heat. I walked a short distance three or four times during the race, but I’m no stranger to walking in a race, and I was still satisfied with my final time.

As much as I enjoyed this race, there were a couple of things that were done better the previous year. First, the awards ceremony was a bit of a disaster. The PA system wasn’t working so you couldn’t hear what was being said. Things improved when the announcer just put down the microphone and used his outside voice, but by then it was too late. The second issue that was much better the previous year was that they had a photographer (or maybe more than one) who took photos last year and posted them for free on Facebook. For me and probably most other runners having free race photos is huge. Unfortunately they didn’t do it this year so that was disappointing. Hopefully next year they’ll get the awards ceremony straightened out and will consider having the free photos again.

Race #243 – Winter Flight 8k – Salisbury, NC – 02/08/14

It’s North Carolina’s oldest 8k road race, now in its 31st year. The Winter Flight 8k is also the state championship 8k road race of the Roadrunners Clubs of America (RRCA), the nation’s oldest and largest running organization. In addition to that, it’s also one of the nine races of the Running Journal Grand Prix, which I’ve competed in for the previous four years, but I’m skipping this year except for this single race since it’s nearby and it’s a race I always enjoy.

Possibly my favorite thing about this event is that both before and after the race the runners are able to stay inside where it’s warm. Registration, post-race food, and awards are all done in the Abernathy Physical Education Center on the campus of Catawba College. The race starts just outside the center and the race ends on the track on the other side of the street. Since in most other races the pre- and post-race activities are outside, being able to come inside to visit with friends or just to warm up is a welcome departure from the norm in the middle of winter.

Congratulations were in order for running buddy
and fellow Gaston County Runners member
Matt Longworth, who came in 1st overall and
won the RRCA State 8k Championship!

Race director David Freeze mentioned in his opening announcements just before the race began that the course is the same one they’ve used for the past 27 years. It’s pretty straightforward and there are ordinarily plenty of volunteers at intersections to keep everybody on course, but as fate would have it, this time around somebody took a wrong turn and it had kind of a domino effect resulting in about 30 runners veering off course for almost a mile.

There is an untimed 5k run/walk that begins at the same time as the 8k. The 5k is an out-and-back course that goes halfway out (about a mile and a half) then turns around and returns to where the race started. As we approached the 5k turnaround there was a sign that said “5k” on the left, with an arrow pointing to the left, and on the right side it said “8k” and there was an arrow pointing to the right.

Maybe 50 feet past the sign the road ended and you had to make either a left turn or a right turn. That’s where the problem began. The two runners in front of me turned to the right. I couldn’t see very far in either direction but it seemed to me that everybody else was going to the left. I had seen the arrow a few feet back pointing to the right for the 8k as I’m sure the guys did who turned right. It seemed to me that we should have all gone left since that’s the way the crowd was going but at that point I wasn’t quite able to process what was going on. I actually stopped and waited for the runners in back of me and said I didn’t think we should be going to the right, and they said that yes, the sign said the 5k was to the left and the 8k was to the right. I definitely didn’t want to accidentally follow the 5k route and in just a few seconds everybody was turning to the right, so I headed right. The farther we ran the more apparent it was that we were off course. There were no volunteers at intersections and two or three times we just guessed which way to turn. Finally after running four-tenths of a mile and chasing those first two guys (I don’t remember if anybody else had passed me by then, but maybe so) I decided it just couldn’t be right and I turned around, trying to warn the 30 or so runners who had taken the wrong turn that I thought we were off course so they could turn around too.

We were only in the second mile of the race and I thought about just dropping out completely but I didn’t know where I was so I didn’t know the way back to the start. I also figured that I may as well just get in a training run and see how things went. I also knew that my two main competitors for the RRCA Senior Grand Masters award were in the group that went off course so we were at least in the same neighborhood (no pun intended).

This is only the second time I’ve ever been lost in a race and this time around it didn’t bother me nearly as much as it did the first time, where I actually did drop out. One of my favorite things about the experienced runners who have been running many years is the stories about their races, and usually the best stories are about the times they got lost. So now I’ve got a story to tell.

As I think back on it now, it should have been obvious to me to make that left turn instead of going right. I’ve run this race before but I don’t remember the course. Having said that, last fall I ran the Spooky Sprint 5k, which uses this same 5k course and I turned around where that sign was placed. I should have remembered that the 5k turned around there rather than going up and taking a left turn. The most obvious thing though is that in seeing everybody turning left ahead of us, we should have known there weren’t a bunch of people in the 5k that were up ahead of us. The 5k is untimed and not really competitive, which is why we didn’t see anybody turning around at the sign. All of the 5k people were in back of us at that point and we shouldn’t have expected to see any 5k runners (or very few) up ahead.

It was good to get back on the course again, and it was kind of fun zooming around the runners near the back of the pack. After what seemed like forever I looked ahead and saw a sign saying we were at the 2-mile point in the race. A volunteer was calling out the times and when I hit the mark he called out 19:44. On one hand I was glad that I was still under a 10-minute pace, but I was about 6 minutes behind my normal position at 2 miles. I looked down at my watch and it read 2.81 miles for the distance, so I knew I had gone eight-tenths of a mile out of the way.

I knew I had a lot of time to make up to have a decent race at all so I just kept plugging away. I finally hit the finish line at 40:51, more than 6 minutes slower than the 8k I ran two weeks ago. I still came in 2nd out of 12 runners in the 60-64 age group, which was a little bit of consolation, but I finished just 13 seconds behind the 1st place runner, who also won the RRCA Senior Grand Masters 8k championship. Well, there’s always next year, and race director David Freeze sent out a message a couple days after the race saying that those of us who ran off the course would get free entry into next year’s race. That’s more than fair, especially since it was probably as much our own fault as the race organizers. I do hope that they change that sign next year or have somebody stationed at the turn, but either way, that’s a wrong turn I’ll remember not to take in the future.

Race #233 – Spooky Sprint 5k – Salisbury, NC – 10/27/13

After the debacle at Saturday’s race in Grover, I was looking forward to what I felt sure would be a much better race in Salisbury on Sunday afternoon. I had been looking forward to the Spooky Sprint 5k, partly because it would most likely be warmer than most other late October races since it was an afternoon race, and partly because it’s one of those rare races that actually has a Senior Grand Masters division.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Masters categories, the Senior Grand Masters includes runners who are 60 or older, the Grand Masters are runners who are 50 and older, and the Masters are runners who are 40 and older. In some areas of the country those divisions are included most of the time in their races, but in this area they are rare. Some races in our region include a Masters category, and every once in a while there will be a Grand Masters, but I’ve seldom seen a Senior Grand Masters in this region except in the RRCA state championship races.

Going into this race I had high hopes of running well. My weight had been gradually creeping up since I did my best running in the fall of 2011 at 138 pounds, and little by little I gained 14 pounds, back up to 152. About a month ago I got back on Weight Watchers and have now lost about 7 pounds, so I’m halfway back at 145 pounds, and I think the combination of losing a few pounds along with just generally eating healthier has improved my race times.

On the night before the race I made a point of going to Athlinks and seeing what my best 5k time of the year had been. It was 20:58 at the Mt. Holly Springfest back in May, and since then all of my 5k races have ranged from 21:10 to 21:47, not bad for a 61-year-old but I felt like I should be able to run under 21 minutes.

The race was an out-and-back course, and it turned around after a long uphill climb, not too steep but I’d guess at least a half mile long. The nice part about a hill like that on an out-and-back course is that you get to run it in the opposite direction, so that was good. As I approached the finish line on the Catawba College track, I was happy to see that I was well under 21 minutes, and my official finish time was 20:32, which made it my fastest 5k in about two years. That’s a great feeling and I’m hoping I can stay motivated until I get back down to 138 pounds or so, and possibly even meet or beat some of my best times from 2011.

The awards ceremony was great and I was pleasantly surprised to win 1st place in the Masters division (ages 40 and up) since I was the first runner over 40 to finish the race (except for the overall winner). I think it was the first time I’ve ever won 1st Masters in any race since I began running at age 56.

As I alluded to above, the overall race winner was 47-year-old Martin Thorne, who I became friends with in April of this year at Racefest, where he introduced himself and told me he enjoyed reading this blog. He’s a fast runner and I just assumed he had been running since high school, but he told me after the race that not only was his winning time of 18:10 a Personal Record for him, but he just began running two years ago when the doctor told him he needed to do something physical because of health problems. Quite a success story. On the women’s side, 39-year-old Kelly Lowman ran a 30-second all-time PR and finished in 19:28, being paced by Stu Stepp, another friend I had met at Racefest when I met Martin. It was nice to meet Kelly after the race, as I had heard a lot about her from our mutual friend, Dianne Allen.

I haven’t run a lot of races in Salisbury, but they’re kind of like the Vac & Dash races in Albemarle in going above and beyond what is expected. Great long-sleeved tech T-shirt, goody bag filled with stuff (water bottle, chapstick, pace chart, key chain, candy, etc.), and excellent planning and organization.

Martin Thorne, overall race winner, was the first returning runner I saw on the out-and-back course.

Stu Step and Kelly Lowman on the way back.

Victor Rosado (red shirt) won the Senior Grand Masters division.

Margaret Hagerty, still going strong at 90, is in the Guinness Book of World Records as being the
oldest person to finish a marathon on seven continents! She began running at age 64.

I was happy to see 20:32 at the finish line!

Just a few seconds behind me was running buddy Sonny Ali. I didn’t even know he was there.

My wife Linda finished strong and was 2nd Senior Grand Masters Female.

Two of my running friends from the Gaston County Runners, Jim Owens and Danny McBee. I’m hoping we can get
a bigger group from the GCR to come to this race next year.

Race #185 – Run/Walk the Greenway 5k – Salisbury, NC – 07/21/12

After the surprisingly tough time I had with last week’s downhill half marathon I decided to take it easy all week, skip speed work altogether, and just run easy right up until today’s 5k, the Run/Walk the Greenway 5k in Salisbury. This is a well-established (15 years) and well-managed race and the course, the post race food, and awards are among the best you’ll find at any 5k.

I woke up at 4 a.m. as usual and tried to shame Linda out of bed at 5 a.m., but she wouldn’t budge. She later attributed her slothfulness to the fact that I tossed and turned about half the night secondary to the piriformis syndrome that’s been trying to remind me of my mortality. That and the fact that I ate a bunch of watermelon right before bedtime and went to the bathroom about a half dozen times. Whatever the reason, I headed up the road to Salisbury by myself, armed only with a thumb drive full of John Prine songs to keep me company.
I was fairly late getting to the race site and jogged up to the registration table to get in before the deadline, happy to see some friends along the way. I just had time to register and take my shirt back to the car and get to the starting line. My Salisbury running partner Sonny Ali started right along with me as he’s done in several past races and we had a good start, trailing the fast high school cross country runners who frequent this race every year and a few other fast runners who were older, but I didn’t see anybody up ahead who I thought might be in my age group. We hit the first mile split at about 6:25, which is a good first mile for me, and I could feel the difference with having lost 8 pounds over the past two weeks on Weight Watchers. It’s the most weight loss progress I’ve made since I put on some extra weight over the holidays last year and I’m hoping to drop another 8 or so pounds to get back down to what was my best running weight ever — 138 pounds.
Sonny and I both got 1st place
in our age groups.
Sonny stuck with me for about the first half of the race then drifted back a little. He had told me before the race he was undergoing some treatment for allergies and wasn’t running quite as well as he had been. I’ve run this same course several times now and it’s one of the few that I can almost remember, kind of a modified out-and-back. There’s one little loop around the block that you take both on the way out and on the way back just to make the mileage correct. It’s hardly noticeable on the way out but I hate having to do it on the way back since you’re so close to the finish line. It worked out fine though and this year, no doubt partly the result of the 8-pound weight loss and partly because of the cloudy skies keeping the temperature down (although it was really humid), I felt surprisingly good throughout the race, finishing 12 seconds faster than last year at 20:55, which was 20th overall and a PR for me in 60-64 age group.
The post-race goodies are great here — Krispy Kreme donuts, Chick-Fil-A chicken nuggets, cookies, pastries, plenty of fruit, bagels, water of course in addition to sports drink and Cheerwine (both diet and regular). I tried to control myself, and I definitely used more self-control than I would have before I got back on Weight Watchers, but I used up all of my WW bonus points pretty quickly. Tomorrow it’s back to business on losing the other 8 pounds.

Race #167 – Run for Tom 5k – Salisbury, NC – 03/18/12

This week we decided to run a nice small 5k in Salisbury on Sunday afternoon to benefit a Salisbury teacher who has cancer. On the SportOften site where I registered I counted 38 runners so I expected a tiny race, but when we arrived at the school where the race was held the parking lot was packed. Apparently there were other options for registering and instead of 40 or 50 runners it was closer to a couple hundred. I haven’t run a lot of races in Salisbury but was pleasantly surprised to see that this race used the same facilities and the exact same course as the Race for the Greenway that we ran last year and really enjoyed. I’ve recently met a couple runners from Salisbury and I let them know we were heading to their local race and it was nice to see that were both already planning on being there.

Linda, Richard, and Sonny

I had met Sonny a couple months ago when he ran the first 3 miles of the Winter Flight right by my side. Today he planned on staying with me the entire race, and right from the start he stuck with me the whole way until we hit the middle school track where the race ended. As we rounded the track Sonny started losing his lunch and about a hundred yards or so from the finish line he had to stop for a few seconds to finish the job. I’ve got kind of a weak stomach myself so I didn’t want to look back. Luckily Sonny recovered in time to beat out two runners who were gaining quickly on him. Things worked out fine though and we finished 5th and 6th overall in the race.

Race #162 – Winter Flight 8k – Salisbury, NC – 02/04/12

This was one of those days that I could have just stayed in bed — kind of cold and dreary, with just enough rain to make me miserable on a chilly February day. There was no sleeping in for me though. The Winter Flight is a special race, one of the winter’s finest, and especially so this year with the race being a part of the Running Journal Grand Prix. I’m currently in 1st place in the 55-59 age group but will be switching age groups after the next GP race (Myrtle Beach Half Marathon) and won’t be eligible for any more points in the 55-59 group after that, so I’m trying to make it hard for anybody to catch me. There was also a special appearance by former Olympian Joan Nesbit Mabe, who represented the US in 1992 and again in 1996. She just turned 50 and came out to try and break the state 8k record for the 50-54 age group, which she did.

I bundled up as usual, looking around at the starting line to see who else might be wearing gloves, a warm hat, and tights. I was the only one wearing all three, but that’s just the way I roll. I’ve seldom been hot in a race and I really hate being cold so it works for me. I lined up with Butch Holt and William Walker, two of the fastest runners in the state in the 60-64 age group, where I’ll be arriving by the end of the month. As the race started I went out ahead of both Butch and William, but I knew I’d see them again before the end of the race.

As the crowd thinned out over the first mile I noticed a runner near me. I didn’t think anything of it at first but then it started to seem like he was matching me step-for-step. We kept going and he was with me at the first mile marker. We probably ran together within just a couple feet of each other for another half mile or so and I finally looked over at him and said, “Looks like we must have had the same thing for breakfast.” He said, “We’re Facebook friends — I wanted to see if I could keep up with you today.” As soon as he said that I realized who he was. He’s a 38-year-old who I hadn’t known before but he had recently sent me a friend request because he said he was impressed at how fast I was for my age. I was glad to meet a new friend, of course, and we ran together for probably another mile before he had to back off a little. Still he finished in 1st place in the 35-39 age group not very far behind me at the end.

Somewhere around the 3-mile mark, just as I suspected, here came William Walker with Butch Holt right behind him. Butch told me after the race that he planned to stay right in back of William the whole 5 miles, then beat him in a final sprint to the finish. His plan worked perfectly and Butch did end up finishing a couple seconds ahead of William. Fortunately for me, neither of them was overly concerned with me since I’m a few weeks away from their age group, so I managed to get back in front of them and finish less than a second ahead of Butch at the end. I didn’t dare look back as we rounded the final turn on the track at Catawba College and headed towards the finish line. I figured looking back would not only slow me down, but there was nothing I could do about whatever was back there anyway, so I gave it all I had because I knew they were doing the same. In that final stretch my heart rate hit 178, which is the highest it’s been in a long time, possibly over a year. I was exhausted, but it was kind of exhilerating too. I thought as we walked off the track that maybe running in the rain’s not so bad after all.

Race #137 – Run/Walk for the Greenway – Salisbury, NC – 07/23/11

If there had been another race around we would have probably ended up there instead, but having made the trip for the 14th Annual Run/Walk for the Greenway I’m really glad we ended up in Salisbury. It’s a first class 5k race all the way: a beautiful course mostly on the greenway with a nice finish on the school track, great organization with lots of volunteers, plenty of food (donuts, chicken nuggets, and lots of good stuff), beautiful trophies, a ton of nice door prizes given out just before the awards, and a nice size crowd of 246 finishers.

It was hot, of course, as you would expect in July, and being one of the hottest days of the summer it was pretty steamy at the 8 a.m. start. Because of the heat, many of the runners I talked to felt like their times were a little off. I felt good and won my age group but was a little disappointed that my 21:07 time was actually 19 seconds slower than a 5k tempo run I did on the treadmill just two days ago. Maybe that’s not surprising considering it was cooler inside on the treadmill and although the hills weren’t bad at all in the race, the treadmill with a 1% incline all the way was pretty flat.
