Are you interested in writing an article about a CSUSB English and ESL (English as a Second Language) instructor who finished 5th in the world in the men’s age 45 5000 meters at the World Masters Athletics Championships for Track and Field?
I am that person: Michael Buckhoff, age 45. I live in Hesperia, California.

P.S. Before the race, I was the number 16 seed and did not expect to finish 5th. Many of the runners, as you see in the video, started out too fast, thus helping me to benefit from their mistakes. In contrast, I started out in the back of the pack, and, while running even splits, worked my way toward the front of the pack. My finishing time of 15:58 was my fastest 5K since 2007. And, as you know, it is difficult to run faster while getting older! It takes smart training and smart racing to run well at age 45.
