Track Town USA

Here’s another short, quirky You Tube video from jeff noel at University of Oregon and Track Town USA.

If you are not a Track fan, that’s ok. This blog isn’t about Track anyway, it’s about excellence, our physical well-being and our approach to what we do with it.

But you already knew that, right?

When and where was the HS Mile record set?

Alan Webb You Tube video, breaking the USA National High School record for one mile, at Hayward Field at the University of Oregon, May 28, 2001.

Here’s an article with Alan Webb’s story from that day.

By the way, the great Jim Ryan held the previous record for 36 years.   This was a monumental day in High School Track & Field.

The winner of the race was Hicham El Guerrouj, from Morocco, the world record-holder, who ran 3:49.92, the fastest mile ever run in North America.

Amazing things happen all the time.  We often forget that they can also happen to us, and do happen to us, but we don’t recognize them because they are not record-breaking feats.

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂
