Liam Murphy and the Allentown squad hit the Thompson Park course to prepare for NJSIAA State Sectionals. The workout involved running the course at race pace, 3xmile with two to three minutes of rest between.
Murphy hit his splits at 5:06, 4:44 (team accidentally cut the mile short), and finished around 5:40. The first two miles were met with high winds and the final mile brought the hardest part of the course with a long climbing hill.
Murphy hit a course record 15:17.66 back on September 21st during the Thompson Park Class meet. That's what his goal pace was based off of and he'll be back there again for one final run on the course during NJSIAA Central Group 3 Sectionals.
