Indoor season is in high gear across the US. This weekend will go down as a fast one. To start things off, my former college, Oklahoma State to their team to Arkansas where Coach Smith had 4 of his runners run under 4 minutes in the mile. Not many college teams have that kind of depth. I guess anything is possible. Next we can head over towards the east coat where there were several stellar performances. Mary Cain who is probably the top high school girl miler out there set a new American high school record for the indoor mile, completing the race in a time of 4:32. Chills rush down my spine when i see girls run fast times. It just proves anything is possible. Finally on the professional level, Galen Rupp went out to astonish us all with his attempt to break the american record in the mile. He was just 1 second short of the record, capturing a time of 3:50.92. What was so amazing to watch was Galen’s Finish. He raced the last lap all on his own, pushing himself to his limits. Once again this proves anything is possible.
