Marathon vs 3k wrote:
I'd be very impressed if Brogan broke 8 minutes. He has never really been a track guy, typically succeeded more in cross country and now roads after college. A likely result is probably in the 8:05-8:10 range (maybe even slower if he goes out hot and completely blows up?). A month after marathon for someone that doesn't have the blistering 3k PR to begin with isn't a formula for a fast 3k right now.
Interestingly, recently in a podcast he said he thought he was trained in such a way that would allow him to be in mile PR shape as well as marathon PR shape simultaneously.
That could, of course, been bluster, but it will definitely be interesting to see him race this weekend.
Also, other entries have been added. NOP men and women are entered in various events.
