Congratulations to pupil and coach. Carlsbad is one of top 5k road races in the world, and to finish 4th in masters division is quite a feat. I also noticed that Andrew improved his time by 23 seconds from last year. That's not small change at this level and age.

Actaully, the timers messed up last year at Carlsbad. Andrew ran 15:43 (his watch and the clock overhead showed the same time). The results showed 15:50 and the guy who was about 40m behind Andrew had the same time. Even the photograph that was sent to Andrew crossing the line showed that he was 15:44 (taken as he was about a step past the line) and the next guy was in the distant background. So, in actuality Andre was 16 seconds faster than last year.

He's progression has been:

2005: 16:37 (age 37) (self-coached at this point, though I was offering advisement)

2006: 16:07 (age 38) (I started coaching him about 4 months before this race)

2007: 15:54 (age 39) (I had coached Andrew about 16 months, at this point)

2008: 15:43 (age 40) (I had coached Andrew about 28 months, at this point)

2009: 15:27 (age 41) (I coached Andrew 40 months, at this point)

Andrew is getting stronger/faster over a wide-range of distances. His consistency has been a key, as well as his focus on not running too hard between key workouts. Seriously, most people run too fast between key workouts, but Andrew does not. Add in his confidence and calmness he has; now you have a winner!
