Nobody thought I was dumb enough to do it twice in a row.
I feel good, ... I don't think I'm just hanging on.
I tried to get a big enough lead so he couldn't catch me. I thought I was by myself for the last 400 meters, but I guess I lulled myself to sleep. Craig came on so fast and I had no strength to catch him. ... The finish line looked closer than it was, but with 150 yards to go, I knew I lost it.
I thought I was alone.
I thought I could surprise those guys and open up a margin and steal the race.
All of them here are sub-four-minute milers and when those guys ran a sub-four-minute mile, a sub-four-minute mile was a big deal.
I was a wreck, I couldn't run and this was a pretty easy decision.
The finish line looked closer than it was, but with 150 yards to go I knew I lost it.
I can't wait to run in the footsteps of the great milers like Steve Scott, John Walker and Peter Elliott, and to get the chance to break the tape, ... I'm excited to see a tradition come back and I'm very motivated. It should be a great race.
