The Miles Covered - January 20-26

The film "Spirit of The Marathon" was shown in Helena on Thursday night the 24th. Mark Burke of Missoula attended and reports that the movie was well done and well worth the trip. There appears to be some encore performances scheduled; but, nowhere in Montana seems to be on the list at this point. Hopefully that changes and we get another chance to view the film. Check for updates. I hope it comes to DVD before long.

The indoor scene kicked off on Friday night with the MSU Open indoor meet on the fast banked track in Brick Breeden Fieldhouse. Some notable performances were:
  • Ellie Rudy of MSU (defending NCAA indoor champ) pole vaulting 4.20 meters (13-09 1/4) to equal the MSU school and field house record.
  • Dan Johnson of MSU setting a new school record with a 400 in 47.56.
  • BSDP athlete Jennifer Thomas with a 5th place in the 800 with a 2:22.31
  • BSDP athlete Alan King with a 13th in the 3,000 @ 9:18.85
  • Jarred Rensvold, future BSDP member, current Blue Dome Social Club Member and a member of the inaugural MSU-Billings indoor track team runs a 4:46.00 for the mile to place 12th.

See you on the roads tracks and trails
