With the next BU Mini Meet coming up it seems like a good time to revisit the season’s first Mini Meet where the awesome power of team work was on display. The GBTC trio of Aly Ursiny, Jess Teal and Victoria Barnaby all went under five minutes for the mile, a barrier that previously hadn’t been broken by Jess and Victoria.

According to Victoria, they “all seeded together and committed to go sub 5 together” and the plan paid off. The results:

Ursiny, Aly 4:54.40
Teal, Jessica 4:57.63
Barnaby, Victoria 4:58.29

“Saturday was awesome,” said Victoria, “I was so sick but totally committed mind over body and forced myself to go with Jess.” Barnaby attributes the successful start to the season (and big new PR) to getting the injuries under control and steady, lower mileage training.
