How Fast Can You Run?

These are the results for the 1 mile event at the Boston Indoor Games last week.

Boston 2008 mile

One of the local runners, Galen Rupp, was trying to break the 4:00 minute mark. He did amazing well considering he had knee surgery in December.
If you’ve ever entered a 1 mile race you know how incredibly difficult it can be. There is no -> speeding up as you warm up mentality. Everyone takes off as fast as they can and runs as fast as they can for 1 mile. It takes me just over 7 minutes.
Galen Rupp ran it in 4:02. Wow! A great run by any standards.
The record at this meet for male is 3:53
