    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.

    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.

    Not bad for mid-October.

    - from Carles B.

    Also - in one of the the 17 gazillion 5000 and 10000 races in Japan every week, Antipas Kibet (Ken) ran 13:08.58.

    NB - CB's blogspot is back. . . . but I can't link it because the botmod sees it as spam.

    I agree that 15:55 is probably not a good simulation for a championship race. A better simulation might be running a 1500m time trial (possibly with a male pacer) several hours before a high level 5000m race with runners like Hironaka and Hagitani.

    Good points...this is far more impressive....


    Galen Rupp's incredible workout right after breaking the American indoor 2-mile record in 2014 in Boston. Workout: 5 x mile (400m rest in-between) 4:21, 4:20, 4:20, 4:16, and 4:01

    I don't know if this was the intention but I don't see that as a particularly difficult set of marks to hit for a pretty decent runner over that time span.

    It doesn't seem unreasonable for someone whose PBs are 3:59, 8:40 & 15:00. If she'd run 15:25 for the 5k instead of 15:55 I would have been surprised.
