A letsrun.com vistor emailed us us to let us know that over the weekend Emma Coburn ran the fastest women's mile ever in the state of Colorado when she recorded a 4:38.08 at Western State at 7,000+ feet of altitude. The description of the video says it was done at "7,771 feet no less!" The emailer says the old record was 4:39.
Aisha Praught Leer also was in the race and appears to have rabbitted much of it.
