    I'll start off.

    4:08 icon_smile.gif

    I run track for Cal (UC Berkeley).

    I'm hoping to find a guy on this site who has run faster than that! icon_razz.gif

    My goal is to break 4:00. I'm a sophomore now. I'd be curious to know who the fastest openly gay runner in the mile is in the U.S. and world.

    I'm pushing 7:30 but I've fractured my right hip a few years ago and I've never been able to run right again. I used to be able to do 6:30.

    OP...I think you're on your own with that remarkable time!!

    I can muster up a 5:30-5:45 min/mile if I push it hard without stopping. Just one mile though and not one foot more! icon_razz.gif

    Haven't run a mile in almost a year, but last year I ran 4:34. I'm more a longer distance guy, though, like 3Ks and 5Ks.

    I'm guessing I could get it down in the 4:20s if I ran it again.

    The Corps fitness test in still maxed out at 3 miles in 18 minutes. Best mile time at 6000 ft, 4:56.

    Did 4:20 when I was in high school 25 years ago. When I last ran it a year ago I was at 5:25.

    Good luck!

    In all fairness, I don't think you'll find too many people gay or straight who will have come even remotely close to touching that time. 4:07 or 4:08 was about the fastest in the Nation among high school runners the year I graduated. Think you're pretty much in a league of your own there.

    I ran a 4:38 in high school, but my fastest as an adult is 5:03. I guess endless 200m and 400m repeats really do make a difference. Maybe I'll try those again one day. Haha.

    It could be you. 4:08 is pretty rarefied air, and I've known many competitive runners. For me? I never ran an all-out mile after the age of 16 (4:58.), but was in much better shape at age 23 (2:35 marathon), so who knows?

    Where do you run? I haven't been training seriously for a few years, but run by your campus all the time icon_smile.gif

    You might find an answer to your question on letsrun.

    I ran about 3.33 miles, doing the first one in 6:15. Have done faster a couple of years ago, but never under 6 minutes.

    1 mile = 1.60934 km
    1 km = 0.621371 mile

    . . . and at my age, it's the distance that matters, and I'm just starting again with a mid-foot strike. Only up to 3 miles. Going for 6.2 miles (10k). It's about 10 minutes.

    Ha, I remember always being a bit envious of the boys at school who could run the run in like 5 minutes during the fitness test. Fuckers.

    My best has usually been in the 7:30 range. I'm happy with that.

    9 seconds.

    Well, traveling in an airliner at 550 MPH counts...right?

    I ran track in prep school and won nearly every race by a huge amount until the state meet. It was 100 degrees that day and I barely won it with a 4:38 time. So that turn out to be my best time but I always felt cheated because in cross county we ran against the public schools and I came in third in the county. One guy I was beat twice in X-country went on to do a 4:15. I knew I could beat him because I always won but kicking his ass during the last half mile. Man did that bother me when I was a competitive kid. It is funny how I don't really give a crap now.

    7 minutes.

    Typed in under 1 second (that's pretty fast, right?).

    The best I ever have recorded was the last mile of a sprint triathlon - at 5:34.
