posted about this in the other thread about this, but realized i forgot Schweizer...
It seems the Bowerman Babes are getting so numerous, they can't ALL make team USA anymore?? (assuming Cranny/Fraser can get to that level.) It was an impressive feat in 2016.
Houlihan, Grace and presumably Cranny would all be going for the 1500 team this year and next. At 5k you've got Houlihan, Fraser and Schweizer vying for team spots, with Hall and Infeld (if she can get healthy) maybe running it but probably more focused on the 10k. Then there's still just the pair of steeplers. But if the schedule worked, Quigley could even jump into the 1500 at USAs, though I doubt she'd double or switch from the steeple. And if Shalane decides to run the 2020 trials, they've got three in that race, too!
agree-the more the merrier, but it seems that the 10k is the only distance where it won't be crowded for qualifying spots looking at Huddle going to the marathon (which will be really competitive in 2020)...worked well for the group thus far!
