How about Linda Somers-Smith running 2:37 at 50? She actually beat De reuck who ran 2:38.
Deena is an inspiration as is Colleen De Reuck running 2:38 today at age 47!!!! Are you kidding me?! If that doesn't motivate you I don't know what will.
Not to mention Meb is nearly 37 and runs a PB, winning the trials against arguably the best American field ever assembled.
Flanagan and Goucher will probably be in the 10k trials (afterall there is cash in this), so you think if they make the top 3, they will drop out and 4th or 5th will go to London?
yeah she can wrote:
Deena could make it in the 10K. Flanagan, Davila and Goucher will probably run the marathon, they can't run both. That leaves Deena, Hastings, McGregor, Huddle and Rhines.
You're right. I hope she continues running. However, there don't seem many pro runners who continue runner after their professional career is over...
She should run as long as she wants if she is enjoying it. She ran well today but he age is a factor. It happens to everyone. Father Time is undefeated.
Hey sub3over40, at give credit to the person who said " Father Time is undefeated". Thank you Charles Barkley!
