    No. I'm not a sprinter.

      Re: Falcon's high school times?

      I am starting to think High school runners that run mile times around 4:05 probably will run better in college than High School milers that run close to 4 minutes. Maybe the 4:05 high school runners peak at just the right time in college.

      Case in point:

      Joe Falcon ran a 4:08 mile in high school. He later went onto run a 3:49 mile in 1991.

      Gabe Jennings ran a 4:00.6 in high school, and has never even come close to 3:50 for the mile.

      I think the importance of running a 4 minute mile in high school is overblown.

        Jennings ran the mile a 4:02.81 in high school.

          <<Jennings ran the mile a 4:02.81 in high school.>>

          Yeah, but he still run faster than Falcon in High School.

            Will Gabe ever even run 3:50 for the mile.

              Wasn't it Falcon's fall in an Olympics Trials that meant the end for him? Must have been devastating for him, and he never reappeared after that -- this must have been 1992. Or do I have my years wrong --

                I'm starting to think that running close to 4:00 is much better for South American dancing potential than 4:05-types.
