Armijo is Selected for USA Half-Marathon Team

The pride of Dukes Track Club, Jesse Armijo, has been selected to compete for the Red, White, and Blue. Scott Simmons, famed collegiate coach from Queens University, recently selected a three-man squad to compete on the roads in Canada at the half-marathon distance. In a wise choice, Simmons gave the nod to Armijo, who has recently been tearing up the Albuquerque roads in preparation for a series of half-marathons, leading up to the Olympic Trials next year.  Armijo has run 1:04:55 for the distance, placing second to Brian Sell, at the San Antonio Rock n Roll Half Marathon. It is Armijo's first US team and he is ecstatic to don the US jersey.  The international dual meet between Canada and the United States is set to be held in Edmonton, Canada in conjunction with The 2011 Intact Insurance Canadian Derby Edmonton Marathon.  Gun time is scheduled for 8am, Sunday, August 21, 2011.

Now most of you who know me (and few of you do, but I plan to change all of that), know I bring up the back of the pack.I’m more of a mule these days, dragging my butt to the ground and my belly in a wheel barrow.I have re-invented myself as a runner many times, from the age of 13-28, a long vacation from running between the ages of 28-42 (ate much, drank more, lounged often) then hit a resurgence at age 42.By then my fast years were a memory, …
