Excuse me? What facts are you objecting to? I don't think I provided any opinions but facts sure seem to have triggered you.
Lol. Not triggered at all. Just calling out the ones that are clueless, with their predictions, observations, and obviously are the ones triggered because they have a different poster on their wall, so they have to be negative, and talk trash about young ladies who prob haven’t even got a speeding ticket in their life, living their best life. These “fanboys” are the poster child for expressing your negative life and self image on someone else. And I’m that guy that is going to just remind these people, what their comments truly are, and that you are wowing nobody with your lack of knowledge. Maybe, just maybe, find your way to a more positive life. That builds up, not tear down. Or carry on, your reality. Keep living it. It’s simple to say, “she’s never going to be the best ever”. No easier statement could ever be made, because there always will only, ever, be one. But to add just plain dumb opinions why, and think your opinions are the reason why, well, is just going to get called out.

Sounds right. By year end, Hutchins 4:32, Brown 4:33, Rauber 4:34, and Thorvaldson 4:35.
I can't see anything close to those mile times for those runners. Hutchins today ran 9:52.3 for 3200 (all by herself) something like 2:24/2:30/2:31/2:27 for her 800 splits. This is also a long way from 9:30.
That’s for sure! None of those girls can even break 4:40 for the full mile let alone those mile times. Except for Brooke, the other three are all trying to break 3200m, 2mile, and 5k records because it is way harder to break records in the 1600 and mile. There coaches are doing them a disservice for their college careers by racing those higher distances so much. It is much easier to go up in distance than to go down. They will not see much gain in college in the distances they race so much until they learn how to race at shorter distances. They are not even in the same league as the recent HS greats at the Mile and 1600 like Tuohy, Starliper, and Hart! Or even Parks, Starcher, and Dudek!
I agree the record chasing is a bit much, but some of those girls will break 4:40. Hutchins ran 4:42 as a freshman and is way ahead of where she was two years ago.
In my experience, my watch is always short on cross country courses and always long on the track. Every 5k I've run has been 3.02-3.05, and they're courses that we've been doing for years and that have been wheeled very carefully several times.
