Subject: RE: SUB-4 MINUTE MILE ATTEMPT....DOWNHILL!!!

Message:
hey big wave great idea and story. when is the event happening? i realise its got to be pretty soon cos of time constraints. Good to see a talented runner taking things not too seriously.

You could get a gps device and try to measure it using that, a good one is accurta to max 6 metres over a mile often much less. a local sport shop may let you use one for free if you advertise the attempt in their name or get them involved in some shape or form - maybe wear one of their vests.

I would also try to measure it before hand and make distance markers at 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 as these could be very imprtant psychologically - obviously not too crucial in the split times due to the gradient changes.

Good luck my friend an ddon't bother posting the naked mile unless your friend happens to be a hot female
