Edward Cheserek Runs 2:21.2 1k Time trial yesterday!!! 6/7/2012 12:22PMReply | [URL=“http://www.letsrun.com/forum/forum.php?board=1”]Return to Index | [URL=“http://www.letsrun.com/forum/report.php?board=1&id=4615306&thread=4615306&page=0”]Report Post
I was at the track yesterday watching Edward Cheserek do a time trial in preparation for the Dream mile and left the track stunned.

[B]He had teammate Naija Omari take him through the 600 with splits of 27.0, 56.2, and 1:25.5.

Then he took over and ran 1:53.9 and finished it off with a 2:21.2 so even though it was hand held it would still be under 2:22!

It was prob one of the greatest things I have ever seen.

My prediction for the Dream Mile 3:56.5 if the rabbit does a good job at getthing them out in 1:58 or 1:57.

What would a 2:21 usually indicate you can run a mile in?[/B]

and then this?

We contacted the Meet Officials after his 1k time trial and we have requested another rabbit for the race. There will be a rabbit attempting to take him through the 800 in 1:57 for the 880. Edward usually struggles with pacing early in the race so our main goal will be to keep him under control to the 880 and let him go. We are hoping for 3:53 and a possible national record.

is any of this true or just a hoax?

If this is true this is crazy. Saturday is going to be a spectacle. Glad ill be in attendance to hopefully witness history.

Do not forget , different guys, but Andrews ran 2:22.xx off essentially 1:56 and ran 4:03 mile outdoors

Tomorrow morning will tell. Sounds a littleodd to be so detailed, especially the second rabbit piece. Although letsrun has always been a highly reliable source of information, impartiality, and intellignent commentary.

That kid is so good, and such an awesome kid. So competitive but humble, and genuinely appreciative of all congratulations and kind words. Still a monster on the track though.

I hope he kills it tomorrow.
