For than three Alan Webb PDFEPUB #232 decades not one American schoolboy had run a sub mile Then in January Alan Webb clocked a mile the fastest indoor US high school mile ever Just a few months later the young track star achieved legendary status he ran Sub 400 PDF or a mile a full seconds faster than former. I reread this during the recent Olympic Trials Interesting juxtaposition with the rabid pro and mostly anti Webb posts on letsruncom of late I thought Lear did a great job of staying objective regarding some of the controversial stuff eg Webb's decision to turn pro after the freshman year at U Michigan that is the main focus of this book Also as in Running with the Buffalos the detailed description of the day to day lives of young elite runners and their coaches is terrific All told an excellent read that gives some insight into the extraordinary pressure and scrutiny faced by Alan Webb I'd love to be able to run like him but I don't know that the full package of hassles criticism etc that his level of talent brings with it would be bearable
