What is a good mile time?

This is entirely subjective and will vary wildly depending on your age and expectations. That said, in my opinion... A sub 8 min mile gets you faster then "jogging" status. A sub 7 min mile is a nice time for runners over 40 or under 13. A sub 6 min mile is starting to get competitive as a recreational runner. A sub 5 min mile is starting to get serious for a High School runner and is very good for a runner over 40 ("all american" if you are 45+). Over 1000 individuals have broken 4 minutes in the mile, including 4 American High School runners and one person over 40.
