Henry Runs Like The Wynned

I can’t post a story every time Henry Wynne does something remarkable.

Well, I could, but there wouldn’t be room for any other stories on “06880.”

However, the 2013 Staples High graduate — the greatest male runner in school history, who set a state scholastic record in the mile (4:05.04), starred at the University of Virginia, and now runs professionally for Brooks Beasts — has done something beyond remarkable.

A few days ago at a Boston University invitational, Wynne flew to a 3:51.26 mile.

His personal best was good only for 4th. But he shouldn’t feel bad. The race produced a new world indoor record: Yomif Kejelcha’s 3:47.01.

The first 4 finishers all achieved world championship and Olympic qualifying standards.

Wynne is now the 7th fastest US indoor miler ever — and the 15th fastest indoor miler in world history.

  2. Seriously? A 3 hour mile is not that impressive, evenI could do that…oh wait, great job!!

  3. I did 12 minutes per mile for at least 3 minutes of the 30 minutes I ran on the treadmill today. At least!

    It’s great to see his times continue to come down.

    • Thanks again for the kind words Dan. Henry loves making Westport proud! Once again I have to say that without Laddie Lawrence and his clear love of the sport and ALL the kids who participate none of this could have happened. Of course Laddie was one of the first people we called after this amazing race!
