You seriously think she should have been in the B race? I agree that it is nothing really to celebrate, but she did break 15 and set a new PR. She's not a 5k runner, she's done basically zero 5k training, so for her to come out, beat Huddle, break 15 and set a new PR is worth talking about. Does she deserve the MF treatment...probably not...but it's still a good mark and worth discussing.
I'm not buying this as something exciting. When someone gets blown-out that badly it just isn't fun to watch or celebrate. She should have been in the B race.

You whiners need to give it a rest. Simpson just became something like the 7th fastest US woman ever at 5000m, an event she hasn't even been training for this season. Simpson is terrific.
Huddle said she could probably run in the 14:40s in a perfect race this year. She's probably 10 seconds too optimistic, but good to see her under 15 minutes again.
dissappointing race from huddle, who claimed to be in 14:3x shape after her worlds race. I took her word for it and since jenny dominated her at nats thought she had a great shot at the AR always nice to see someone break a barrier though. It feels like its been forever since a US woman ran under 15:00, and I've been hoping for Jenny to add her name to that list since the 15:01 early winter solo effort at UW in 2009
what does the MF stand for? mother F'in??????????????
