    I Love Barringer! Every since watching her post race interview at the trails last year I've been a fan. She's is so upbeat and has that "Killer Instinct" on the track. I can't wait to see her crush that Steeplechase American record this week.

      Is it just my imagination, or am I just plain crazy to think that this was a golden opportunity that Jordan Hasay missed? Even if she were anywhere near the back of the pack (I'd say 4:08, or is that too fast, too soon), I think she might have broken the HSR no matter where she finished.

        I am a big fan of Jordan Hasay, but she was in no way ready for a race like this. 63/2:08/3:12 - sorry, but no way. However, I believe her day will come!

          I agree, Ruth. That wasn't my quote. 8-)

            As I wrote about a month ago, I hope that she and Willard do Steeple & 1500 at USAT&F.
            Willard stated in an interview that she would be running the 1500 at Nationals. Not sure if this result changes things.
            Willard just entered USAT&F 1500 & Steeplechase and is "open."

            Barringer has been listed as "qualified" in 1500, Steeplechase and 5000. I assume that if she isn't injured while running NCAA she will drop the 5000.
            none

              Yea, and last week people were telling me that Willard would beat her because Willard has better speed...
              Willard may have come down the straight just as well as Barringer. She started from farther back.

                Couldn't help but chuckle over this from the July T&FN:

                [Willard and Barringer] will meet [at Pre] coming from different directions: Willard shooting for a sub-4:00 in the 1500 and Barringer--with thoughts on her final cross country season for Colorado--shooting for sub-15:00 in the 5k.
                Well, predictions are only for the most intrepid. :lol:
