The men and women’s field at this year’s Old Dominion 100 on June 4th is unlike any other the race has seen in years and years. Maybe ever? Here is what [I think] I know about the field. It’s going to be close at the front for sure!
Registered gals who will make OD a race:
Sabrina Moran (last year’s champion)
Registered guys who will make OD a race:
Little ol me
Little ol me
“Maybes” that could make OD something more:
If everyone named above toes the line it is safe to say that Old Dominion will produce some very fast times, a few runners may finish in daylight and the race directors had best be ready to part with a large sum of expensive silver hardware. Sean and Keith tell me they’re not racing this one hard but they run pretty fast even when they run slow. I don’t personally know the ladies listed above but I have heard from reliable sources they’re registered. The guys’ names listed above are friends and that is how I know which guys are showing up and who is considering running. I don’t know Eric G. (or Karsten) but I know what his blog says; it says he is running. Who else am I missing?
The Old Dominion entrants list is not published and I have not seen it; therefore, I imagine in addition to the names listed above there are likely other fast runners that I do not know about who are registered for the race. I hope so. I also hope that this blog post finds its way on to the computer screens of other runners- fast, slow or in the middle, men and women- who are on the fence about running Old Dominion and to whom I say see you in Woodstock!
