Winter Track

Trackkill Racing doesn’t have the same ring to it as Roadkill Racing, but for the next few months that is what we will be doing.  RIT has a series of 4 open track meets that several RKR members will be racing in.

The meets are put on the River Road Running club and feature track only events 55 meters to 5000 meters.  Each month in Dec, Jan, Feb, and March they choose a few different races and an occasional relay event.  This is my 3rd year running in the series and they always do a great job with timing, and moving things along.

For the first meet on December 19th Mike and I are going to be racing the 3000.  Last year I ran 9:35 but hope to improve on that by 15-20 seconds.  We had a great 6×800 meter workout on Friday at the U of R track which is much slower than the RIT track.  I’m hoping that workout translates into a good race next Sunday.  Stay tuned for race results.
