First Sub 4 Mile!

Today I broke the barrier that has been a measure of milers for over 50 years. I ran 3:59.18 and ran almost the entire race by myself. Right now I'm at home resting for a few minutes before heading back to the track to pace the 5000 at 4:30. I will post details about both efforts (and the trip to Boston) in a day or two. For now, I'll just post the splits- First 800 - 2:02 and change, second 800 - a little over 1:56 with a 57 last 400. Here's a link to results: http://www.cyclones.com/fls/10700/track_live/index.htm?DB_OEM_ID=10700
