German Fernandez. Let's see if Leo can top the GOAT HS runner.
One thing the NBP runners will have going for them is that they can push each other. German, I believe, won by 50 seconds.
I saw a video of Fernandez's race and he absolutely did not leave anything on the table. His historic doubles at the section and state meets and his 8:34 were all run by his lonesome. He couldn't possibly have run faster if he had had teammates to run with.
I’m sure he did run his best solo effort. There is still a chance he could’ve run faster, if pushed. That’s literally the reason why people travel to competitive races. If everyone could run their best effort solo, you could just time trial on your home track.
