Prefontaine 1500 Meters Results

Results from Saturday night: 1 Will Leer USA 3:41.132 Jordan McNamara Lane CC 3:41.133 Gu Ming China 3:41.684 Sean Jefferson Oregon TC 3;41.965 #5 - Blake Boldon USA 3:43.116 Gabe Jennings USA 3:43.137 Ryan Bok USA 3:43.528 Scott Wall USA 3:43.829 AJ Acosta USA 3;44.0910 Rolf Steier USA 3:45.48 I split 2:56 for 1200, passing the pacesetter shortly after 1000 meters. It was a disapointing outcome, but I'm trying to view it as just another step in preparation for the US Championships in two weeks. Information for that meet can be found here: The preliminary round of the 1500 is on Friday, June 22 at 6:25 pm. I'm in Portland for the night and fly to Omaha tomorrow. I hope to write an account of my trip and finally put something together about earlier races while I'm in the air.
