What a Sub-4:00 mile looks like

We were lucky enough to be able to attend the Music City Distance Carnival put on by TNRunning Saturday night and see some truly awesome athletes compete in various 1 mile and 5K events (we missed the steeplechase, which I really wish we had gotten to see!!). I've never been to an event like this before, and WOW, have we missed out!! This pic is of the winner of the Men's 1 mile event, clocking in under 4 minutes. Truly amazing sight. In all, I believe 3 guys squeaked in under 4 and several more were right at 4. The bright flash is another photographer's camera going off, which I think makes Brent's pic even cooler!!! More pics of the event and the other festival we (sort of) got to go to later. Have a great Monday everyone!
