On January 28th some of the best milers in the world will converge on New York City to race the Wannamaker Mile at the Millrose Games in Madison Square Garden. 2 weeks before that I’ll be running in a much less prestigious indoor 1 mile race, but to me the lack of prestige makes it no less important. I’m hoping to repeat my outdoor performance of 4:34 last spring, and prove to myself it wasn’t just a fluke. I know running indoors is slower, but I am fairly certain I am in much better shape now than I was last June.
This time I’ll have to race without having Mike to chase down in the last 400 meters as he will sit out to rest his achilles. Hopefully I can talk some more RKR members into racing with me.
