He he speaks on Greg Harger's events, the American Milers Club. Note that there was some serious 800 meters and 1,500 meters running.

While Lindsay Gallo and Jennelle Deatherage ran very close to the 4:07.00 A standard, they are withing fighting distance.

Sam Burley pulled a A standard, at 800 meters, and Jon Rankin continues to dazzle with his 1:47.01. 5,000 meters specialist Kyle King ran a smart 3:43.59 in the first meet on June 11.

On June 14, in the 800 meters, Alan Webb ran a 1:47.41 in very tight 800 meters, won by Andrew Ellerton of Canada in 1:46.07.

Also note that Steve Sherer ran 3:36.81, just over the A standard of 3;36.60, and Andy McClary followed in 3;36.91, Chris Lukesic in 3:37.51, Rob Meyers in 3;38.73 and Kyle King, back for more, running 3:40.66.

The men and women's 1,500 meters and men and women's 5,000 meters at the Trials will be very, very difficult to pick. With Manzano's win at the NCAA's on Saturday in Des Moines, running from the lead start to finish showed not only his
fitness, but his determination.

Is there a list of US 1500 meter times in order? I ran 3:42.07 in 1988 training with NIke - and did not qulify for the trials and always wondered if it made the top 1,000 US times or so. What would be a reasoanble mile equivalent? (In 1988 no one ran the mile because it was not allowed for qualifying purposes). I appreciate any info you might have. My kids want to know!
