We caught up with Molly Huddle yesterday and talked to her about the loss of her American record in the 5000 and her NYC Marathon preparations.
"I would have loved to have fit in a fast 5k (after Rio) but when I committed to the marathon back in March or April, I looked at the Diamond League schedule and I looked at Brussels and said, 'I'll miss that race,' and it's upsetting (as) you always want to be in the Diamond League final in Brussels. It's a great meet and great track," said Huddle, who wasn't surprised that her record was broken by Rowbury. "But I committed to (the marathon) a while ago knowing that Shannon was in great shape and even Jenny (Simpson) was in great shape and that one day they would crack under 14:40 and it was this year. That's where the record belongs - we'll see how much lower it can go."
