LRC VIP Jim Walmsley Just Misses 100k World Record By 12 Seconds – Video Reaction Show The LRC staff was yelling at the TV during the final 400 urging Jim to get the record.

Walmsley Is Upbeat After Race: “Definitely feels like one of the more special runs I’ve had. I got everything out of myself today, dug real deep, and fought all the way to the line.” “I don’t feel like I gave up, but it was tough to see the seconds tick by. It’s a little bittersweet, but definitely awarded with an American record today, and those don’t come very often … A 45-minute PR. It was a pretty amazing day.”
