Yesterday I went to watch my very first Sir Walter Miler Championship, a competition where elite runners race hard to win the mile. It was a really cool experience, especially when the officials let my two cross country teammates and I into the inner field to watch the competition up close on the edge of the track.
The winner of the women’s elite mile was Lauren Johnson, with a time of 4.25, and Kyle Merber won for the men’s with a 3.54! Both amazingly fast times!
We had a great night and the bonus was my teammates and I met Drew Hunter one of the runners in the event that we have been watching over the past season.
