Kyle Merber wasn't going to watch Ches run 3:52 at home
Kyle Merber has been hitting the indoor circuit hard in 2017 as he is fit and healthy. He came to Boston where he benefited from a fast pace in the mile and set a massive PR of 3:52.22. It was the first time Merber has broke 3:54 and jumped into the U.S. all-time indoor mile list at #6. Merber will run next week at the USA Indoor Championships and looks to target more fast international races this spring. Merber's time in Boston also ranks #2 in the world in 2017, behind Cheserek.
