This Day In Running- February 17th

2007- A brand new American, Bernard Lagat, establishes a new American Record in the indoor 3000m run.  Lagat's time of 7:32.43 broke Doug Padilla of Nike's Athletics West record by nearly six seconds.  Padilla's record had stood for 17 years.  Lagat holds the top 5 American times in the 3000 meters and until recently was the American record holder over 2-Miles indoors.
