|Subject: ||RE: Cayla Hatton, High School Senior, Runs 33:17 10,000m Olympic Trials |
I was there with 4 GBTC runners in the 10,000. Conditions were ideal for most long distance runners. For Hatton the guys offered an even pace and company. There is no doubt the time and distance is real.
Runners had no heat stress and no wind. Hatton did not have to make pace decisions or worry about place as in a championship. But we can't say that the lack of personal competitive pressure that might be there in a title race helped or hurt her time. The weather certainly helped.
