Subject: RE: 7th grade miler Runs 4:55
1) It for sure happens, but again, the OP mentioned a 7th grader, and in none of your examples was there a 7th grader running 4:55 or faster. Take that for what you will.
2) Ohio is not a bad distance running state, so let's not go too crazy with the "cornfield" talk.
3) I agree that anyone who shouts that their kid is going to be the next big thing based on a time in the 7th grade needs a bit of a reality check, but the way to do it is to mention that it's WAY too early to tell. Some kids mature at different stages. Some kids lose interest. Some kids improve just minimally while others improve by leaps and bounds. You want to say that there are "lots" nationally that do it, then ok. Calling it "common" though is a bit much.
