Chris Marco of Toms River South explodes in the mile clocking a smoking 4:10.43! That's a US#1 converted 1600m!
Yesterday at the Brook PR Invite Marco took 4th in the race after a fantastic effort. Running a personal best and a NJ#5 All-Time performance. He would take it out in his usual confident form. Really pushed the race but would fall to some INSANE kicks from the other competitors. (Video of the race embedded below) (Audio gets rough)
