In episode 133 we have a great show for you. Did you watch the USATF's? Did you see the men's 5k? I thought it was absolutely one of the most entertaining 5k races I have ever seen. Over the course of that race I went from thinking what is Woody Kincaid doing up there, to thinking Woody Kincaid is done to saying wow, what a gutsy race by Kincaid. I became a fan. We talked to Woody about the race, what he was thinking and how he feels about being top 3 but not getting a spot on the World's team. This was a great episode and I hope you enjoy it and share it.

17:45 In the first 600m you already gapped the field, did you know it was going out that fast?

18:58 At the mile marker when he starts talking to you what is going through your mind?

20:07 Did he put a crazy hard surge when you decided you were not going to take the lead?

21:18 When you clipped him was that when he pulled off to the side and almost stopped?

21:45 When you got to the lead what was your gameplan?

23:40 Pack catches you, I turned to my son and son and Woody is done, did you have concerns when they caught you?

25:13 With 500 meters to go you fall back to 5th did you think you were ok because you can kick well?

26:00 with 250 to go you fought your way back into it and I became a Woody fan

26:45 When you are racing you are thinking about winning, you probably are not thinking about the standard the whole time right?
