We present to you the death of American distance runners, on this date, 3/10/2019.


I disagree, I think we can get 3 people in ALL the Distance Events, based on Time Alone, The 10000 looks the toughest, we have been underachieving in the Marathon, but I still think we can get 3 in the Marathon. Remember for the Olympic Year everyone ups their game, I don't see how this negatively effects the Trials, as I expect a half dozen or so to have the Standard BEFORE (Maybe only 3 in the 10000, maybe 8-9 in the 800) and the people that don't have the time, got to just go for it, which assures a fast race, The Olympic Trials are to choose are team, the times in the Olympics will likely be faster than the standards, I Mean 1:45, 3:35, 13:13, 27:36 and 8:22 is in fact tactical/ pedestrian pace for the top runners who run 1:42-1:43, 3:28-3:30, under 13:00 Under 27 and under 8:05.
