    I know a guy who beat the freeze. It was awesome, I was at least 4 ballpark beers in screaming at him from the right field corner as he crossed the finish line.

    The Freeze is fast as fuck.
    I still call it The Jake.

    Who here is a math wiz, what's the length of the outfield arc at Truist Park?

    Hmm...the Fridge is pretty fast. I wonder if SUF could take the Fridge?

    The Freeze got his own frozen drink and sponsorship from Racetrac this year. Chedda coming!

    I was about .23 slower than him in the 100m based on college times. How much of a head start for being old?

    I think I could be competitive in the Home Depot tool race.

    Measurement in Google Earth turns up roughly 170 meters.
    I think that is why you see so many fail. They are decent the first 100m and then fall off quickly the last 70.
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Looks like most runners get a 4 second head start. If you figure he's running around a 22 second 200m pace, I figure you'd have to keep up a 27 second 200m pace to beat him (since he doesn't have the last 30 meters to make up all 4 seconds of head start).

    Good research. We can always count on this place to deliver. So we need a 200m specialist. Any 200m guys here?

    Very solid. How's your 200?

    Bmills, do you get anything if you beat The Freeze?

    His top collegiate 200 time is 1.2 seconds faster than mine and I was faster than him in the 400.
    At my medium age, I might be able to pull it off with a 4 second head start but more likely my hamstring would probably explode at the 150m mark and I'd be embarrassed .

    I could beat him. I ran the 200 in HS. That was only 30 years ago.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    One Hundred Dollars.

    And some Racetrac swag too.

    This brings up a good point, I don't think I've ever seen someone go down mid sprint like they were shot from the upper deck.

    I never cracked the 22 second barrier. 23.8 I think was my best. I'd blow out either my lower back or a hammy (probably both along with a groin) before I hit 100 meters. Maybe if I paced myself, my hammy would give out at 150, and then try and crash and burn over the finish line...

    I think I could take the freeze in a cage match.

    Put a urinal at the finish line and I might have a chance.

    The real question is, could the freeze beat a chimp in hand to hand combat?
    Brandine: Now Cletus, if I catch you with pig lipstick on your collar one more time you ain't gonna be allowed to sleep in the barn no more!
    Cletus: Duly noted.

    Imma say I can still beat 27 seconds. Maybe a year ago I spent a significant amount of time doing speed training with my high-school age soccer-playing daughter for "fun", so I had a good sense of what I could do then. Granted, at my age you can lose a lot of fitness in a year, but I'm going say I can still get it done.

    I'm guessing our college track mags can smoke that still if they are still out there running at speed now and then.

    Actually, now that I think of it, I ran 100/400 hurdles so I might do even better in the chaos of the HD Bucket race...

    We're gonna need SUF to weigh in on that as chimp fights are his purview.
