? She's run 15:15 this year - less than a year after giving birth. The US leader is 15:13. You call that "doing OK?" I call it doing incredible. The issue seems to be she's not doing as well at the longer distances.


well nearly forgot about this one ! this was a crazy effort and to be honest I was really impressed by that one !

But after this she kept on running behind expectations however she is more of an headline than Bruce who actually won the race !

Her running technic seems to be non efficient for the longer stuff

Has it something to do with post birth problems (heavier upper body due to breastfeeding)

She was always very low on body fat but seems to have gone down even more after switching to running which seems an issue for me as well !

I will not see her make any team or a podium on a normal day at US Champs

I don't see her finish a marathon even close to a time making her a contender for the trials in 2020 this fall

We should focus more on people who delivered on the day !

Bruce got that win might not be an impressive one neither but she deserves it and I feel happy for her !
