4:33: 67.5,66.3,67.9,71(409). Jerry and Dickson were out to get that sub 4:30 and that was my goal as well. I did the best I could but I tied up in a flood of lactic acid and just couldn't hit that last lap at 65 like I wanted to. Getting old. I did the best I could but just couldn't get there.

First lap, felt way too easy. Felt on top of the world at 800. beginning of the 4th lap the legs started locking up. By 300 to go Jerry came by and Nico plowed past me like a bat out of hell in the last 200. I just had nothing to respond with. Just haven't done the lactate tolerance work and mile racing to get me to that sub 4:30. It's not something I really train for. I did the best I could and it was a good time.
