yeah, and when hall ran it, the course was wet and muddy. today's conditions were much better, but i think hall would have even had a hard time running that fast- 26 seconds faster- probably not possible for him at that time.
that is really amazing though, because not only is that for 5k, but it's also on some rolling hills with some 50-70m inclines and such, so on a 3.0 mile flat course, he could probably easily go under 14:00 as he probably was under 14:00 today at the 3 mile mark. some good runners coming out these years. can't wait to see what he does in the 2 mile. maybe put jeff burbank's 2 mile record on the line??
