This is fantastic! The 10K is a very disciplined race and it is so easy to get distracted. To blow away all D1 competition is a fantastic achievement. Let's hope it gives her the confidence to make the US Olympic team. I'll enjoy the Olympics a lot more if she is there.
June 26th in Oregon. Her AC Record time puts her seventh heading into it assuming that the six ahead of her run that particular distance. Shalane Flanagan is #1, about 1:45 ahead of her as she's the American Record holder. #2 is about 30 seconds ahead of her. what's great about this race and winning easy is that she can use it as a difficult training run to sharpen the stick but didn't have to kill herself with the trials coming up in 2 weeks. Truthfully she's probably one olympics too early but what a great experience. Great job out of her and Coach Ihmels.
