I thought she was in college. That sounds like a HS time. Baxter, Cain and others would mop the floor with her.
cain...maybe, but baxter no.
she ran 16:36 completely alone. who knows how motivated she was. same goes for baxter. but they wont be racing each other again for a couple years, so who cares.
also, i doubt that LH will progress as she did last year, in her first collegiate season.
she just needs to stay healthy and not run too much. i know for a fact that she goes faster than she probably should be for easy runs. when i see the team out running, i always see a big pack of the guys, then laura, then all of the other girls in another pack. i dont see why she needs to run 10-20 sec/mi faster than the rest of them on easy days.
