M4 Time

This Friday in Bozeman, as part of the Bozeman Running Company Invitational, the old guys get their annual indoor track glory in the Montana Men's Masters Mile.  Taking place immediately following the national anthem, it's a chance for over-35 crowd to shine on the indoor circuit.

The brain child of John Zombro of Bozeman (and owner of Zombro Physical Therapy), this will be the 9th edition of the event.  And, as Zombro would say, it's turned into a full out rock and roll performance of great Montana stallions.

This year's field will be comprised of:

Patrick Judge
Rob Walker
Bryan Johnson
Matt Edwards
Kyle Strode
Chad Coley
Shaun Marshall-Pryde
Ray Hunt
Clint May
Dean Lipp
Steve Gideon
Russ Skelton

They will be chasing the meet record set last year by Jesse Zentz of Helena @ 4:29.62.

Last year there were a total of 12 runners who broke the 5:00 barrier - including 2 over 50 runners.  

My prediction for 2012 - Pat Judge finally gets the win in 4:43.  Ray Hunt 2nd.  Kyle Strode 3rd.  SMP pulls off another 50+ sub-5:00 race.

The Buzzard will be making the trek to Bozeman to partake in the mayhem.  Will give a full report of the race as soon as I can this weekend.

Until then, see you on the roads, tracks and trails.
