Patrick Tarpy absolutely dominated the field at the New England Mile this morning, coming in at an impressive 3 minutes, 54.8 seconds. His excellent race was the first sub-4 minute mile run by a Maine runner on Maine soil, and earned him a $1500 bonus that was generously donated by Smith Barney. When the race was over, he was asked at what point he knew that he was going to break 4 minutes. His reply? “Yesterday.”

Congratulations to Pat, and to the rest of the great field of around 300 finishers this year. Official results will be available later this afternoon.
