    • I didn't realize that Weini Kelati was an American now.

      BOSTON (CBS) — A 24-year-old woman set a new record during a 10K race in Boston Saturday. Weini Kelati, a Flagstaff resident who was born in Eritrea, now holds the new American 10K record for a women’s-only race. It happened at the Boston 10K for Women, presented by REI. This is Kelati’s first professional race. She finished in 31:18, beating the 2015 American record by three seconds.

      Ethiopia's Haftu Teklu (59:39) And Kenya's Sandrafelis Tuei (67:12) Win Barcelona Half Marathon.

      Ethiopia's Abdera Adisa Tola (59:54) and Kenya's Joyce Chepkemoi Tele (66:35) win Roma-Ostia Half Marathon.

        Remember she competed at the Olympic Trials literally days after she got citizenship in late June.

          Oh, yeah, I do remember that now - thanks.
          Does she have a shot at making our 2022 team? She's off my radar now after a great younger career.
          Sisson, Schweizer, Monson, Schneider, Cranny, etc., are formidable talents.

          • Alice Wright just smashed the UK record for the One Hour run on a track!
            She ran 17,030 meters (unofficial), beating the old record by about 535 meters (16,495 meters from 2000).

            25th A-T is 17,323 meters, so Alice is maybe 30th or so A-T.
            The American Record---17,930 meters--is by Molly Huddle, and she's 11th A-T!!
            Only 7 women have run at least 18,000 meters!

              Did they catch Gidey's split at an hour?
              It had to be over 20K, well beyond Hassan's 18930.

                You can see in the video when she goes by 20k...around 59:35.

                  That is only 10.5 miles.... the old record was 10.25 miles...about a 58:35 10 mile.

                    Her goal was to break the UK record, and she did that by 535 meters!
                    I don't know if you did a typo, but her 10 mile split was about 57:00, not "58:35"!
                    Her pacers (Guess they needed other runners to make it official!) DNF'd at or before halfway, so she soloed the last 30 minutes or so!
                    And while breaking a record is noteworthy, that was a weak UK record.
                    And let's face it, Alice Wright was a great XC runner for New Mexico, but her 10K track PR is just 31:56, and her Half best is 1:11:38.

                    As for Gidey's Valencia time, that was a ROAD time, not a track time!!
                    And we're talking a woman whose 29:01 WR is about 2:55 faster than Wright's best!
                    Finally, the Hour Run is a rarely run obscure race---although I wish it was more popular.
                    I LOVED running Hour Runs (best of 9 miles 1150 yards).

                    • Japan has some fabulous female youngsters at the moment - Ririka Hironaka, Kaede Hagitani & Nozomi Tanaka have all run sub-15 this year (aged 20, 20 & 21 respectively) and Tanaka 3:59 at 1500. Any of them would dominate in the NCAA.

                      But 18 year-old Seira Fuwa may turn out to be the best of them all. I first noticed her in July when she ran 15:20.68. For an 18yo that was seriously impressive but what she did at Sunday's Morino Miyako Ekiden (AKA the Japanese Women's University Ekiden) was another level. Heck, based on this, she might even be better than Hironaka etc already!

                      She ran the 5th leg, the longest leg at 9.2km. The Course Record for this leg from the previous 38 editions was 29:14. By no means a soft record - every team puts their best runner on this longest leg since it's where they can make the most difference. Anyway, Seira Fuwa ran a phenomenal 28:00 ... If she'd continued at that pace for another 800m she would have run 30:26 for 10km!!
                      The U20 WR on the track for 10,000 is 30:26.50. Finishing just ahead of her, Yuka Suzuki ran 28:59 (she ran a 31:37 PB on the track this year) and Narumi Kobayashi ran 29:28 (31:22 PB this year - the collegiate record). There's some ups and downs on this leg but the net elevation looks close to zero.

                      She's not 19 until next March and so will still be eligible for U20 records next year!

                      Someone put together a video of the TV coverage of her run - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0eU5IgoQyFM (it starts about 15s before she starts; she's in the orange top). She got quite a lot of air-time because they knew she's a talent and it was clear from the first kilometre that she was doing something amazing.

                      • At the Cross Internacional de Atapuerca tomorrow (Sunday) are the deepest fields of any XC or even non-Olympic road race so far this year. It's being streamed with no geo-blocking.

                          • Kostas Gelaouzos won the Marathon (Athens) marathon yesterday at 2.16.49. This is the fastest ever recorded time by a Greek running from Marathon to Athens.

                              Fuwa ran 31:29 10k in another Ekiden over the past weekend. She will likely to make a 10k debut on track early next year.

                              • Yes, I stayed up to watch the East Japan Ekiden. I guess she's not going to be mind-blowing amazing every time, sometimes she'll be just amazing (for an 18yo).

                                As Brett Larner noted her middle 5km wasn't that quick (either backing off or maybe having a bad patch?) but then she ran a smidge under 3 minute per kilometre pace for the last 2.5km.
