    Appreciate your posting these results highlights -- I know we're going off-topic in this thread, but it is an interesting set of USA athletes there, & some interesting & good results:

    Hasay, e.g., @ 15:25. Comparing across 5k settings, this is her fastest ever. She made her road 5k debut in March, in 15:41. Came into 2014 with a 15:37.29 5k track PB (2011), and has lowered it 3x, to 15:28.56. So, positive for her at this late date of the season to run a 15:25 yesterday (which was also her 23rd birthday -- seems like she's been doing this forever, and she's just 23yo).


    And that other veteran, Mary Cain, who has a 15:45.46 track 5k PB from 2013 -- 15:53 yesterday. Seems a good result for her.

    And then Jen Rhines, now 40yo., @ 16:00. Not bad for her, either. Her earliest 5k (16:05) on all-athletics.com is from May of 1996, the same month that Mary Cain was born...

    But back to Fernandez. Good to see him racing & making progress. I hope that he is getting into a training environment that will sustain & support him so he can develop toward fulfillment of his potential.

      Rogers is one that I am interested in; raced on to the scene dramatically racing the 10,000 at NCAAs and then doing so well at the Trials (but without a qualifying time), only to get hurt the following year so substantially that when she could not recover she left the TX A&M squad her senior season and sat out quite a while to heal. Not sure if this is her first serious race since the Trials.

        I checked Tilastopaja and all-athletics.com, and both show no marks for Rogers between the OT 10k and this race. So, good to see her coming back.
