Over the Tartan and Through the Woods: Vaughn 4th at Nike Mile

Vaughn_2009Held annually at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, OR, the Nike Mile gives employees a chance to compete on a unique track which was actually built through a stand of trees on the southeast corner of the campus.  Considering that Nike presently “employs” the American record holder in the mile, among many others, the fast section of this event is, well, quite fast.  Brent Vaughn continued his card of early-season under-distance races and acquitted himself well, putting himself right in the thick of the lead pack at 1200m, and ultimately taking 4th place with a 4:01.57 clocking — a PB for the full mile.
