The Cain Train is still at another level, although that is not to take anything away from the Efraim Train, which is picking up speed.
When Mary comes into form again, I suspect it's going to be clear she is the top runner from the US.
I think a lot of the reason I haven't been rooting for Mary is that I wasn't following the sport lat year when she was setting her (insane) records. Nothing against her personally.
What's the most impressive of her times?
Is she the greatest female high school distance runner ever?
None of those. 4:07 at US indoors this year at altitude.
Interesting. Do they usually have championship meets at altitude?
I read the LetsRun article that converted that to 4:01 at sea level. Too bad it can't go in the record books.
