The second meet in this year's Indoor Mile Series saw one record fall. Jaimie Wright broke her own NVRC Women's Masters record in the mile. Last year, Jaimie set the record by running a mile in 5:35.81. This year, Jaimie shaved about quarter-second off her record, finishing in 5:35.56. Jaimie also came second in her heat to Jay Kopper, who won in 5:16. 51. Jaimie is also this year’s overall women’s Series leader, with a best-of-two combined time so far of 11:20.62, which is just 5.1 seconds off the Women’s Masters Indoor Mile Series record of 11:15.52 set by Meira Minard in 2014. Jaimie can break that record in the Series finale next week by essentially splitting the difference between her time in Meet 1 and her record setting time in this meet. Or she can break her own record, also set last year, in the 3K run.

The first heat was run by Grace McStravock in 6:09.02. Jaimie Wright was second, and Andy Maguire came in just behind her in 5:35:82. The “fast heat” saw several lead changes before Nicholas Deamer beat David Kennedy in a sprint to the finish, with both going under 4:30 (4:28.75 and 4:29.20, respectively). Andreew Hanna was third in 4:34.07. As is often the case with the fast heat, all runners finished in under 5 minutes.

Next week’s meet is the Series season finale. There will be heats of the mile, and one heat of the 3K. You can run both, if you dare!
