|Subject: ||RE: Are steeplechasers just rejects who couldn't make it in other distance events/cross country?|
as a past steeplechaser, looking back the exact reason i started it was to make nationals as a 15 year old. i was a decent runner but not fast enough qualify in the 3k or 1500. i learned to like the event and by the end of college was pretty good (ran at nationals). as far as cross country i was an all american so that was alright. i always found the steeplechase to be easier then a regular event becuase the race is broken up so much. i found it mentally easier to run barrier to barrier and plan my race that way. in the 5k i always got stuck counting down the laps which was no good for me
