    Woody who?

    Missing sub-13 by less than half a second must sting a little.

    Nice improvement for MC also. It seems his second best time is 13:20.06, Palo Alto, CA, MAY 4, 2014, per iaaf.org.

    The last few years, I'm getting more and more Track meets auto-recorded on my DVR, and it's great!

    I think it would help 1500m times.

    I believe Curtis Beach did a 1500 on a third day in 3:58 (due to weather).
