    For what its worth, Webb's time is worth about 13:54 according to Purdy. Given roads are generally slower than track (hills, no spikes, etc.) it is probably safe to assume that he is in high-13:40-ish shape for 5000 right now. Consider that its November and that he ran 14:06 on the track last spring, this shows he's making good progress. Give him another six months and hopefully he'll be where I thought he could be going into an Olympic year.

    Given that he is what, 20? 3:34-3:36 would be great. It would also position him well for a run at 3:31-3:33 next year or the year after. He would be a redshirt soph at Michigan right now... that is an extremely impressive time for a redshirt soph. Progression people. Progression. I'm saying 3:35 something or other.. splittin the difference between the 34 and 36.

    Congratulations Briana J. The youngster always seems to find herself in the mix with the best of the best. The 13 year old phenom has had an outstanding season (who has cracked 18 minutes several times this season). Look for her to dominate USATF JO XC.

    The question is: is 3:36 really such a big deal? In a good season, it wouldn't even put you in the top 50 in the world.

    As many of you know, I am often critical about many things in our sport. One such "thing" was Alan Webb last year (I mentioned from Fall 2002 through the summer 2003 that he would not break 3:40 and was called all sorts of nice little names). Anyway, this year my prediction is exactly the opposite. A big year for AWebb... 3:34-3:36 range... and watch out for 2005 and 7 WC and 2008 OG.

    Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

    Manchester Road Race - Webb Third, First American

    An outstanding effort by Webb. He claimed some big scalps in the process, including beating Riley, Lincoln, and a bunch distance guys you would normally think would take him over this distance, including none other than the reigning Olympic 5,000 champ. Best race he's had since Michigan.
