No NAU guys?
No NAU guys?
Bosley was shown by Flotrack to be in 3000, along with Luis, Kessler, Jenkins, Nuguse, Atkin, Yihune, Fogg, Hacker, Garcia Romo, Ubine, Huffer
Collegiate record attempt by Bosley? Based on his strava, he is super fit and prepared to run the 3,000. NAU doesn't fly to Boston to play games. No Nico is interesting, hopefully he is still healthy.
Thanks. Tip of the hat for such a succinct answer.
Yeah I have to imagine Bosley is gonna go for the CR, but will he get it? 7:38 is tough and I'm not sure if he has enough speed in the 1500 to get it. Several of the guys in that field are going for sub 7:45 as per the Citius video so it would be a great race to try for it in.
J. Klecker to break 13 - Geordie to run a PB/NZ record.
Seems about right. I’m actually pretty intrigued by Flanagan. Could see him taking down the bigger names.
Klecker haters will be in shambles this weekend after he breaks 13 for a rust buster. Idk what Geordie's gonna do but he pulled out 13:12 last year so hopefully faster than that.
The guy ran 13:04 in one of his first 5ks outdoors last year. He’s in much better shape currently. Opened up a workout the other day with a 3:57 mile at altitude.
On top of this, it could be said that BU is the fastest indoor track in the country and more importantly, he’ll have pacing through 4k which he’s never had before.
I’ll bet anyone here $10 he breaks 13.
10 WHOLE dollars?? Might want to ask mom and dad first, little guy
I hope he does break 13, which would be awesome. But I think you're overestimating that workout. It was basically a mile race and some VERY easy threshold work, considering his LT is probably like 4:40 pace and he was doing those 2ks closer to mid 4:50 pace. Pros run mid distance races all the time followed by workouts. I look at that and view it as an intrasquad time trial mimicking a meet day without having to travel.
To me, all that indicates is that he's in shape to run a mile around 3:50 at sea level, which doesn't necessarily mean a sub 13 5000.
But I hope he does it.
Nico’s in the Millrose 3k
You are free to take it.
Sure man, I’ll bet you $10. I think it’s totally possible and I’d like to see it happen, but I’d put it at less than 50%. And the “3:57 mile to open a workout” thing is a little disingenuous; as the other poster said, it was more like a 1600m controlled time trial, which I don’t think proves more than 3:52-53 mile fitness at sea level.
I think the most likely result is 13:01-13:05. I’ll go way more specific and say the pace is a couple seconds off the 13:05 target through 4k, and Klecker closes in ~2:32 for a 13:03 PR and the win, with Kincaid kicking for 2nd in 13:06.
Since he ran that 3:52.0i last year, I’ve been expecting Beadlescomb to take it to the next level at 3k/5k. So for now I’m going to stick with that notion and say he breaks 13:10 here, lopping a chunk off his 13:17 PR.

Citius guys are saying the word at Very Nice is that Beadlescomb is very fit.
Based on my info, I would expect Beadlescomb and Flanagan to possibly break 13:10...
On the Klecker thing, first of all it was 1600M, so add 1.5 to his 3:57.5 or so it looked like, much more like a 3:58, very high to 3:59 mile
That being said, I think he could go very close to 13 flat..maybe dip under. I think we get jaded today, because guys are running so fast all over and people say its the shoes...it's the shoes
And the shoes help..indeed. I think guys are finding much much better overall coaching than there was even 5 years ago. Better depth in training groups...training hard ....and those are my thoughts.
You were the first guy to take me up on the bet, so consider it done 🤝
regardless of the result, glad this is even a discussion and possibility. When I first started following the sport a few years ago, no US guys were close to this mark.
I'm not calling Marc Scott a scrub, but he did it last year in his opener at Boston (12:57). I don't think he's that much better than Klecker. And in that race, they only had a pacer thru 3k at 13:11 pace. Here, they will having pacing thru 4k at 13:05. I don't think it being an opener has anything to do with his chances when his group is basically doing soft time trials in workouts as rust busters. Also, I think Klecker ran that 13:04 coming off an injury. If they actually go 4k @ 13:05 pace, I give him a 75% chance.
