The 2012 Indoor Mile Series was another success. Over 60 runners participated in the mile races with 38 of them running at least two races and 7 running all four. In addition, 10 runners took part in the 3000 meter run. In distinction to the last few years, no records fell this year, in part because the bar had been set so high. Nick Berra, Series Open and Masters record holder and last year's champ, repeated this year with times somewhat slower than last year. Beth Herndon won the women's competition with one of the top three combined times in Series history. In the 3K, while the times on the men's side were a good bit shy of the records and no one broke 9 minutes, there was some heated racing among the top 3 finishers. On the women's side, Cassi Knight came just short of breaking 10 minutes (and her own record from last year). The only thing we'd like to see more of next year is masters level women. Jane Brooker was the only masters participant and she only ran one race. The Club record is hers for the taking if she shows up for two races next year.
