I knew Darius was fit, as he won the Los Gatos One Mile Bang race last week, but I wasn't sure what kind of shape Will was in. The gun went off and I found out pretty quick. 

Will took off and instantly had a small lead, which he held to the finish. I stayed with him and Darius for a little while. After a quarter mile I expected them to settle in because I felt like we were going at a 1500 pace. They never let up. I let them go at around the half mile point, and still came through the first mile in 4:37, 10 seconds faster than I had planned. It was a painful and slow final 2 miles. I worked hard to hang on for third in a time 15:17.
