1500 meters – Master’s Nationals

It was a great day of work for Rob at the USATF Master’s Nationals in Jacksonville, Florida.  Rob lined up the day after a very hot (temperature-wise) 800 to set a HUGE PR in the 1500 – more than 5 seconds faster than his previous best. rob usatf 400h

Here is what Rob had to say about his 1500 meter race:

“After a long couple of days and a long set of delays, I wasn’t really confident tonight. The field ended being pretty big as they combine a few races after the delays to make up time. So here’s how the race went down:

I was 6th on the line and they lined us up all on the first line. No California start. Things got crowded quickly and the first 150 was a bit of a mess. Finally found some room to navigate at the 300m and though I was back of the lead pack, I had room to move.

1st 400: 68
800m: 2:17
1200m: 3:28 (I got scared)
Final time: 4:22 and change.

3rd in my AG. New PR by about 5 seconds (too tired to do the research right now)”
