excellent run by Malcolm Gladwell at the 5th Ave Mile. he's talented!

Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point and other best-selling nonfiction books, continued his return to more ambitious running with a 5:03 finish at Sunday's Fifth Avenue Mile in New York. Gladwell (#6430 at left) was 11th in the men's 50-54 age group , which was won by Alan Wells in 4:43. As Gladwell, a staff writer for The New Yorker , discussed in this interview with Runner's World , he's been running with a bit more structure and dedication since joining the New York Harriers. In college, Gladwell ran 3:55 for 1500 meters, which is the rough equivalent of a 4:13 mile. Despite Gladwell's speed, he's probably not the best runner among The New Yorker 's staffers. The editor of the magazine's site, Nicholas Thompson, ran 2:39:09 at last November's Philadelphia Marathon.
