Thorvaldson tried to run a time she couldn't today. Splits: 3:20, 3:08, 3:18. Roe was 3:03, 3:02, 2:54. Jolly of AR who finished over 1 minute behind Bush of NC St in NCAA XC ran 9:07
She is a gutsy runner. I love that about her. She just goes all out in races.
She’ll need to develop a sense of strategy over time; for the same reason that pitchers throw change-ups, and quarterbacks sneak, and dictators use diplomacy. Eventually you meet your competitive match and need to use some slight-of-hand.
