NB Boston Top Performances and Personal Bests at 1st Twilight Meet

The New Balance Boston Twilight Series proved to be very successful with a great turnout and great performances overall.  While the meet itself was highlighted by the podium finishers in the 1500 and 800 (Featured Event), there were some specific performances by NB Boston members that should also be noted.

Top NBB Performances from TM 1

Caitlin Malloy - Doubling with a 4:37.38 in the 1500, followed by a 2:18.09 in the 800
