How the hell is she considered "elite?"
I looked her up and I found this 10k result:
Aliso Viejo, CA 12.7 53:39 4:13/km
She's all over instagram, and apparently is the darling of the Nike "Elite" trail running team.
I am hesitant to look into the credentials of the other member on this team, as I'm sure they're equally pathetic. Do the runners on this team have contracts? Or do they just get free gear?
I'm calling it right now, trail/ultra running is a sham. I'm honestly jealous, I wish I could find a way to market myself and get a Nike contract while not being able to break 50 mins for 10k.
Where did you find that result?
I'm more confused by how a 53:39 10 Km somehow produced an average pace of 4:13/km... that makes no sense at all.
