Mother nature must have wanted to see some fast performances in Waltham because she blessed the J. Lee Gould track with comfortable temperatures, low humidity and almost no wind. An extraordinary assembly of athletes took advantage of the conditions to set new PRs and post qualifying performances for the national championships.
Fresh from a PR of 2:02.33 at the addidas Oregon Track Classic, Jen Toomey kicked off the evening's elite races with a stunning 2:02.88 effort.
Mark Carroll undertook a particularly interesting challenge, entering both the 1500m and 3000m with the full intention of running and winning both races. He expected 3:43 to be fast enough to win the first race in his double, but Justin Niedzialek (3:40.06), Adrian Blincoe (3:40.41), Paul McMullen (3:40.59), Clay Schwabe (3:41.62), Eric Nedeau (3:42.46), and Hamish Thorpe (3:43.57) had their own ambitions to fulfill. The qualifying time for the USATF championships is 3:41.80. Congratulations to Paul McMullen on his return to form. Exactly 21 minutes and 21 seconds after crossing the line in the 1500m, Carroll toed the line for the second time of the evening. Ably rabbited by Jeff Paterno for 1200m, Carroll took responsibility for the pace with Mulvey, Armitage and Dwyer covering. Amitage moved to the front at the bell with a strong move. Only Carroll could respond. Carroll regained the lead with 250m remaining and held a small margin over Armitage to the finish in 8:07.13.
