            Very good. About was expected after last week's outing which was without competition and breezy. This 333 is a true indication of where he is. Any word on splits? Did he move up of fall back the last 400? Of course, if there is any concern it would be that he is running very fast very early. But, there is no pleasing some people.

            Gary, do we now consider him the fave at OTs?

            Also, Berryhill?

              Just looked at the results. Only .5 off the winning time. Apparently he had a very good finish in a very fast time.

                Being only .5 off the leader - that's the best news of all - he can hang with the big boys.

                  Just watched it on TV:

                  300m: 42 seconds -- 5th place
                  2.25 at the 1K mark -- 5th place
                  2.36,8 with 400m remaining
                  2.51 at 1,200m

                  Moved up between 1000m and 1100m...held his own until last 50m -- got caught from behind...

                  42 last 300m... excellent race!

                    I'm sure the plan still calls for more finish sharpening - I just hope there is still more left to sharpen - so suddenly fast again. I've always been hopeful but really didn't expect this so early this year.

                    It is very exciting to see an American in this kind of shape. Now clearly sub 3:50 is in the cards for this season. It looks again like he may be the guy to take down the AR within the next couple of years (if not sooner?).

                      It's also equivalent to a 3:50.8 mile, making his goal of a sub-3:50 at the Pre Classic all the more credible.

                      (Yes, I know I'm a throw-back.)

                          Wow, very busy. Too much too early? I guess he is using races as workouts. Again, similar to the old high school days but on a much different level. It worked then, it appears to be working this time.

                          Hopefully come the OGs he'll still be ok. He'll have to take a break after trials. They have probably broke the summer in half, peak for trials and for OGs.

                          The 800 should be interesting. I'm guessing low 1:47.
