Is it a mistake in the article, or did the winner really run his second mile in 4:04?
I read somewhere it was 4:07, but still—that’s an incredible split.
Peachtree’s 2nd mile is a sloping downhill, so it makes sense for it to be the fastest. But the course goes right back upward again for about a half mile around the halfway point. From there on, it’s all rolling.
