She needs to stay just where she is.
I agree w/your assessment that the women's steeplechase is "for real"; however, after a number of stagnant years in the 1500M as well as the character of the event at championship races (no sit & kick victories at slow times anymore) it's difficult for me to believer that Coach Wetmore hasn't advised her to move up BACK to the Steeple or up to the 5K. Jenny has something that none of the other listed steeplers have --- an ability to go sub-4 at 1500M. That speed and decades of altitude training are the attributes that must be leveraged at this point in her career. In summary, it's Tokyo at Steeple/5K or retire at age 33 & begin your familiy.
- It's also time for St Jenny to stop disrespecting other athletes w/her ad hominem attacks. As usaul, the louder you are on social media the slower you have become because you're JONESing on attention/accolades which keeps you "happy" in this grueling profession.
