Two Mile Race - August 1

There is a 2 mile race on Friday, August 1 in Bethesda. It is put on by the same folks who put on the mile a bunch of us ran last Friday. Some of you have watched/run in it before. Last year Andrew Jessien and Nate Carlson ran 9:31ish. I am hoping to go through the mile in 4:40-4:45 this year and try to keep at it. I could use any/all assistance. Maybe we can head to a Bethesda area establishment post-race for some light beer and such...?
The fast heat of the two mile is the first event (7:30pm). Slower heats follow.
There is also a one mile race (for those that want to double/workout). It is fairly low key (usually won in a time slower than the split during the 2 mile) but the 400 can produce some fast times ~ 53ish.
The cost is only $5.
