Nike Outdoor 2 Mile!

So tonight is THE big night for HS Distance fans. The Nike Outdoor National's 2 Mile. It seems the only question is ,Will German Fernandez beat Jeff Nelson's longstanding 2 Mile Record (8:36)? His 8:34 3200 at the Ca. State Meet converts to 8:37 and he ran it solo after a 4:00 1600 effort. Here he'll have stiff competition from Rob Finnerty(MN, 4:01 last week) and Nike Indoor 2 Mile Champ Luke Puskedra (UT). Colby Lowe (TX) should factor in there as well. TX fans note that Southlake Carroll has entered a Distance Medley and The Woodlands have entered a 4 x Mile. 

I think German's main competition would have come from Chris Derrick (IL). Chris, it turns out, is quite a writer. Please read his attached preview of the race from
