Hell he ran 27:52 on a cool day at Bolder Boulder 10K at altitude in 1995. That is a hilly course and the best road 10K mark ever, altitude converted. Better than his Peachtree mark.
According to the NCAA program, that would be equivalent to a 26:54.58 in Boulder if a college athlete ran it.
Pretty darn good, but altitude conversions in my book vary so much depending on the person.
I'd argue a 27:04 in Atlanta on July 4th is better. I looked it up - the low that day was 61 and high was 97.
Regardless, you are thinking of someone else and have the time wrong. The winner of the 1995 Bolder Boulder race in 27:52 was Kenya's Josephat Machuka.
