Chris Theodore and Mason Brown currently own the top two times (senior or otherwise) in the state.

Rankings articles aren't my favorite fare to publish because I always look to the rankings and say something like, "Yes, but what if..."

Still, you have to start somewhere. And in this article we're starting with the top 100 times posted by senior boys around the state of Colorado thus far this fall. 

The biggest caveat to absorb with this list is the notion that no two courses are created equal. You can bet that no times from Devil's Thumb, Battle Mountain, Lake County, or a few other meets appear on this list. On the other hand, you can rest assured that Liberty Bell and Joe Vigil are fabulously overrepresented on this list. In fact, if you take a tally of it, Liberty Bell times appear 63 times on this list and Joe Vigil times appear 17 times on this list, out of a grand total of 102 times on the list (due to a tie at the 100th spot). 

In short, if you didn't run at Liberty Bell or at Joe Vigil, you had a much tougher time making this list. Centaurus and St. Vrain make up most of the rest of the list, with a scattering of other meets.

I would suggest that Joe Vigil and Liberty Bell run comparably fast. Centaurus is a reasonably fast course, but not as fast as either Joe Vigil or Liberty Bell. St. Vrain is not a fast course--it's presence on this list owes to the quality of athletes who ran there, not to the inherent speed of the course. 

So, as I suggested before, this list is just a starting point. But, at least it gives you a first idea of where you rank in the greater scheme of things. And, if a screamer of a course hasn't come your way yet this season, hopefully at least one will before the end of the season.

And, whatever you do, don't assume this list will end up this same way at the end of the season.
