What's with these old folks!?

Just found the schedule for the Virginia Senior Games in Virginia Beach, which I have to do (that or Maryland's) if I'm going to qualify for the Nationals at Stanford in 2009.

These old people get up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep, so what the heck, let's start the competition, right?

  • Thursday 20 May: 20K cycling ITT: 7:00 AM
  • Friday 21 May: 5K cycling ITT: 6:30 AM
  • Saturday: Nothing unless I want to do track and field sprint stuff and probably pull a muscle . . . or learn to play tennis by then . . . guess I'll volunteer at the track and field events.
  • Sunday: 5K race 7:00 AM
  • Sunday: 10K race 8:30 AM
Sheesh. I might as well not sleep. I guess I'll have to instigate the drunken geriatric revelries on Friday night. (Now just try to get that mental image out of your head!!!)

The other thing I have to figure out is how to take three minutes off my best 5K time in 3 months so that I can qualify in that (25:08 or better). Ouch.

Early race = early finish = early start to the revelry!

What time do your races usually start? Our races always begin early here....but it's because of the heat!
(I am used to 5:30 a.m. 7:00 or later seems like I am waiting around forever!)
