His attitude and preparation allowed him to nail it

Starting line for 1500m… two hours before the race… traffic (and heart rate) was much different by race time…

Did his midlife attitude and preparation allow him to nail it? The 50-something Baby Boomer had a mental plan:

  • 400 in 1:28 (88 sec lap)
  • 800 in 2:55 (87 sec lap)
  • 1200 in 4:20 (85 sec lap)
  • 1500 in 5:20 or better (60 sec or better final 300m)

The reality…

  • 400 in 1:24 (84 sec lap)
  • 800 in 2:51 (87 sec lap)
  • 1200 in 4:20 (89 sec lap)
  • 1500 in 5:18 (58 sec final 300m)
