    Fast guys & fast times but saying the course is a slight downhill would be an under statement.

    Running downhill takes more energy than running uphill... it cant be real. It might be though?

    Nah man, I am in track and field and I run long distance. We have to do hills and let me tell you its easier down than up.

    Let me put this issue to rest. Running downhill speeds you up, however, it all depends on your muscle mass. The more muscle you have the more impact your legs can handle which increases speed.

    Mike Boit also ran 3:47 in the first edition of the 5th Avenue Mile-- the first elite road mile ever, I believe. He was a great road miler, up, down, or flat.

    Boit was, to me, one of the most underrated great runners of all time. He pushed Coe and Ovett hard during their primes. As well, he had a long (and always fast!) career.

    Slight correction, Steve -- it was Sydney Maree that won the inaugural Fifth Avenue race in 3:47.52. Mike Boit was second in 3:49.59.

    Fun facts: Mike Boit competed for Eastern New Mexico University in the "Four Mile" at the Springbank International Road Races in London, and the first Canadian male to compete at the Fifth Avenue Mile was Ron Becht.

    Thanks, Andrew! Forgot all about Maree in that race. It might be because Boit led the first 400 of in 53 seconds that day! When interviewed after the race and asked about the opening 400, he famously said "That time, it blew up my mind!"
