A random poor performance doesn't make this one any better.

Bayer has run 23 seconds off the 3K world record, last year which no one In the world would say isn't a tougher WR than the steeple which is held by a 7:32/12:48 guy. Not a Komen level record. Bayer just ran 32 seconds off the steeple WR a year after his 7:43. You would hope he'd be fitter so those numbers would be even more lopsided if there was something to be excited about which would make this performance even less relevant.

It's a step in the right direction but let's start talking about steeping when he runs under 8:15.

Not putting down Bayer, it's his own high level of prs which make this for now not that interesting, I'd be more encouraged if he was pr'ing in the 1500/3k since those are strong marks.
