Ford Palmer reflects on 3:54 mile in first-person account on new running site

Absegami graduate Ford Palmer isn’t just a good runner, he’s a pretty good writer as well. Palmer, the fastest miler South Jersey has ever produced, ran a personal-best 3:54.92 this weekend chasing Edward Cheserek to the finish line at Boston University.

Cheserek, who ran at St. Benedict’s in Newark before attending Oregon, broke the college record with his 3:52.01. Palmer was less than four seconds back with the No. 21 time in U.S. indoor track history.
