Galen Rupp after American 2 Mile record & thoughts on Lagat
This past Saturday Galen Rupp broke Bernard Lagat's American indoor 2 mile record by .35 running 8:09.72 with splits of 4:07-4:02. Across the country Lagat took down Rupp's American indoor 5k record by about six seconds running 13:05. We made the trek to Albuquerque where Rupp is currently doing altitude training with his Oregon Elite group including Mo Farah and Ciaran O'Lionaird through the USA Indoor Championships. Galen talks about his race, sinus infection, Geoff Hollister and going head to head with Bernard Lagat at the end of the month. And if you're wondering, Galen is doing an easy 4 mile run on the treadmill at about 6:10 pace.
