On Wednesday, July 17th in Guelph, they laced up for the 1500m event under very humid and hot conditions.
Ethan's time of 4:16.24 just missed his personal best by 0.08 seconds.
Spencer ran a season best time of 4:24.24.
On Sunday, July 21st, they both travelled to Hamilton for another Twilight Meet for the 800m with much more comfortable temps.
Both had a goal of running under the 2:00 barrier and they succeeded!
Pentland crossed the line in 1:59.13 and Book stopped the clock at 1:59.26. Personal best times for both.
This was Ethan's first time under 2:00, while Book has only done this once before last year.
