In a prelude to his stunning 3:58.81 mile indoors at The Armory in New York over the weekend, Newbury Park senior Colin Sahlman prepared in what he called a "rustbuster" race outdoors under the lights at Eastmark HS in Mesa, Arizona.
There, with younger brother Aaron Sahlman setting a rapid early pace, Colin Sahlman ran 4:05.13 for the mile.
In this week's MileSplitCA Tasty Race execution, we step back to that January 22 race with Kevin Selby on the call, to watch Sahlman prep for what was to come. He talks about it afterward with MileSplit's Logan Stanley.
