Big Boys Run Big Miles

A couple of big miles today for Montana boys - both at the UW Husky invite on the big indoor oval at the University of Washington.

In the open mile, John Ricardi ran 4:10.77.  John's a native of Gardiner and ran at Idaho State.  This run came after a nice 14:46.16 at 5K last night.

But, the fireworks really belonged to Lyle Weese.  A Dillon native, MSU Alum and current assistant coach for the Bobcats, Lyle came oh so close to being Montana's third sub-4:00 miler.  Running in the invitational mile - with several olympic and world championship caliber athletes, Lyle popped a 4:01.61 for 10th place overall.  Lyle seems to be approaching his best fitness ever.  Impressive effort.  Congrats Lyle.
