From Bob Kennedy:

"I'm very happy for Ritz. It's a spectacular performance. I'm proud to have held the record for 13 years and even more thrilled that American distance running is moving forward again.

I think it's fitting that the record was broken on the same day (my wife) Melina filed to run for the Mayor of Indianapolis. End of one chapter and the beginning of the next in the Kennedy family chronicles."
