It has been nearly 3 years since I last raced on the indoor track. With the All-Terrain series kicking off in 2015 with an indoor track mile I think it’d be prudent to do a couple of races before the ‘big’ one. I’ve done the BU mini meets five times over the last 15 years, although I would have thought I’d done more. It is a great series of three small meets in late December and early January where you can go test yourself on the track. It is an all-comers meet that on some weekends may have over 100 people doing the 3,000 in various heats.
I’m planning on running the 3,000 and the 400 tomorrow with the goal being simply to run as hard as I can. It should be “fun”.
My past results at the Mini meets (place is just my place in that particular heat):
