Chris Barnicle world's fastest stoner just misses sub 2 in 800m at BU Last Chance

World's Fastest Stoner to attempt sub-4 mile

You may remember him from the Olympic Marathon trials a year ago. Chris Barnicle, a talented distance runner at his peak, now calls himself the "world's fastest stoner." This year Barnicle is back living at home in Newton, MA where he is coaching himself, making his own cannabis products and setting new goals. Two off those goals are to run the Boston Marathon and to become the first "stoner" to break four minutes in the mile. Barnicle ran 2:07 in the 800m two weeks ago and today dropped his season's best to 2:00 (his 800m PR of 1:55 is from high school). Barnicle looks to target the sub-4 attempt in a late summer meet here in the states.
