I never said that I ran it at a meet, I said it is my best 500 meter time. I hold the 500 meter record at Taft College in Taft CA. The 59 came in a workout a week before the California Junior College Championships. My head coach was (Doug Wells) in 1987 and we had five runners under 60.8 seconds. Anthony Barnes was the second runner at 60.0 and Harlan Davis was the last guy to come in. He only ran 60.3, but came back the the next year and won the California Junior College 200 & 400 meters State Championship in 20.3 and 45.7. Coach Wells is still coaching today, but he is no longer at Taft College. He is over at Cerritos Junior College, fill free to e-mail him and ask what you like!!
