BU Valentine Invitational Results

A record-setting day in Boston for TWSS...

In the men's mile, Tristram Thomas suffered from poor seeding as he led his heat wire to wire, winning in a new club record 4:19.73.  Tristram held the previous mark of 4:21.49, set last year at the UNC Invite.  Alex Battaglino cut 7 seconds out of his time from a couple of weeks ago, running 4:28.70.  Louis Foudos ran a really, really awesome race, crossing the line in 4:44.32.  Greg Jubb pulled out after 800m (2:03) with an injury.  And Brian Leiter, who has been training with Jubb some, ran 4:06.34 to finish 24th, which is utterly beastly.

In the men's 800m, Ed Aramayo had a breakthrough race as he sprinted to a 1:58.25 finish.  This is an indoor PR, and the first time in 4 years he's gotten under 2 minutes.  Coach Amy took a video which I retweeted, but I'll try and get it on the blog at some point.  This is 2.5 seconds faster than he ran just last weekend at PG, and also a club record.

TERRIFIC work gents!  Enjoy the rest of your time in that awful, awful city.
