Payton Jordan Cardinal Invitational Meet at Stanford - May 2, 2009


I attended Payton Jordan Cardinal Invitational at Stanford yesterday. This was my first such meet and it was truly exciting to see/meet some elite runners, for example 10.57 secs for 100 meter and many such athletes. I had a short interaction with Amaechi Morton who broke a 38-year old Stanford record in the 400-meter hurdle and the fifth fastest in the nation this year. Two key advises from him for a runner: "higher intensity" and "more practice". And based upon that I truly enjoyed my hills run at Rancho this morning.

Anyway, read the details on the event website and the complete results are available here. Check out some pictures:


Here is a long jump captured in action:

Thanks to Randy Miyazaki for providing me with the opportunity to attend the meet!

Marathon and Community

I got the first feel of fellow runners marathon this morning when I was at Stanford University School of Medicine Hospital helping Dr. Suzanne Miller in a study on "The Effect of Endurance Exercise on the Cardiac Function of Recreational versus Professional Athletes". Read more about the study here. In approx an hour at the hospital, the following tests were conducted:

The results of the study will be published in a medical journal and the results of personal heart tests (claimed to be worth thousand of dollars) will be made available.

"It's all about Community" said the Director of marathon on the radio yesterday. 3500 registered runners from all over the country, 800 marathoners, The Health Trust, Hilton, NBC 11, ASHA, KLIV and a multitude of sponsors and charities shows community involvement. 

My next blog will be after the run and will talk more about community.
