Rono-Shaheed showdown at Carlsbad 5000 in works?
Henry Rono says on the letsrun message board that he’s down to 176 pounds (having lost 33). More significant, the former world record holder at a gazillion distances says he’s training with a 5000-meter road run in mind. He writes: “I’m focusing on (Nolan) Shaheed in April 5k masters race in California.” That would be the famous Carlsbad 5000, which Steve Scott helped launch more than 20 years ago. Henry turns 55 in February, and a big race in a major market would be incredible.
