Colin Charles (12) leads his heat in the boys 1 mile race. Charles finished his race with a time of 5:14.6. This was Charles’s first indoor track meet and he felt pretty good for his first race. “The indoor air is a lot different than outdoors; it hit me pretty hard,” said Charles. “I’m hoping this’ll be a good springboard for the rest of the outdoor season.”
