Should be exciting. Check out this video of Austin Mudd running the "Indiana Miracle Mile". I believe this is the first time he ran a mile in competition (up until then, I believe he focused on the 800m). He co-leads the race early, drops back, and then...he obviously has quite a kick!

A good running authority told me he thinks Mudd could beat Lukas if it comes to a sprint. It should be some kind of race. There are so many top-shelf runners.

Yes, loads of talent. My source in Indiana says the race promises to be "epic." Hope there is a video of it on youtube this weekend.
