top 100 by event aronnk have fun
Appreciate the thought, but Dyestat does NOT give me what I need.
In case you (or anyone!) don't already know, I have a self-compiled over-500 page T&F Record Book.
It's done in BIC pen on lined college-ruled notebook paper, and kept in about 28 separate manila folders.
I've been doing this since the 60's, though lost it during the hippie years, so had to re-start it in the early 70's!!
Here's what it contains:
I cover both indoor and outdoor (completely separated!!), both men and women.
My 7 (actually 8) categories are:
Miscellaneous: Lengthy listing of metric conversions from yards, etc; best combined events athletes (based on TIMES, not points tables) for several different combos--1500-5000, 1 and 2 miles, 800-1500, and so on--;best place marks, WR, CR, HSR, Class records (grades in HS, frosh, soph etc in college).
Age Records: Individual year age records for most events (e.g. no 2K, since it's rarely run!), from 17 to 40.
Meet Records: Best marks at Penn, Mt SAC, WC, Pre, etc.....but using a VERY high standard.....so not all events, and not every meet, is included!!
National Records: Same as for meet records. Best by nation, but using VERY high standards, so NOT all events nor all nations included!!
DDD's (Double Dandy Dozen): These are my Top 24 (Thus, the DDD acronym!!) Performers in most events (No 2K, as noted, and no 300, 500, or 600 indoors!!).
The DDD's are in 4 sections.
Top 24 HS performers.
Top 24 Collegiate. (No separate American Collegiate!!)
Top 24 USA.
Top 24 World.
(More than 24 if there's a tie at the bottom of the list!!)
These categories are the SAME for Men and Women, Indoor and Outdoor (except no combined events marks for indoors, and no place marks indoors either).
I keep each category in a separate manila folder, so they're easily accessible.
Marks are CONSTANTLY revised and updated!!
Also, I do NOT include any CONVERTED times....e.g. from 1600 to mile, 3200 to 2 mile....so my HS one and 2 mile lists are VERY different from T&FN's!!
I do NOT include any OT marks....so it's as if Simpson's 15:01 was NEVER run!!
(Same goes for Cain's 9:02. As far as i'm concerned, her FASTEST 3K is her enroute time of 9:04.51!!)
Anyway, THAT is why Dyestat (and sometimes even T&FN!!!!) are NOT my most reliable sources for my record book.
(I use them...but I have to slowly sift through the lists, making sure they adhere to MY standards and rules!!)
BTW, for me at least, I LOVE doing this!!
