Gobbler's Gallop 10K
« on: November 26, 2012, 06:20:06 PM »
I ran this back in PA when home in 2004 and won it in 36:31.  I rumbled up and joined another 156 runners this year and managed a 2nd overall in 37:32 which is what I felt I could accomplish.  Winner was 36:31, which turns out to be the top
guy from my alma mater at Slippery Rock.  He basically looked like he went out for a jog. 
Splits: 6:12, 12:05, 18:00, 24:09, 30:18 and hammered home.  You finish on the track which I like.

Good job Double. Always fun to go back to the old stomping grounds and see how you stack up compared to years past. It looks like you still stack up pretty well.

Nicely done, Double.

Gobbler's GallopTiffany Wolfe  Gobbler's GallopRunners warm up in the cold for the 17th annual Gobbler’s Gallop on Thursday.

It's still cool to get the lone pic in the paper.  Do serious heel strikers live longer?

Ha! They do if their initials are DD.

Is that some old Slippery Rock gear?

Good racing, not far off of that 2004 form.  Gotta be cool to be the poster boy.
Why dink around? Go for it, be the best. It is worth whatever risk there is even if you fall short. You will be better.
