In hindsight, while we had an offer from an 8:19 steepler, it was an easy choice.

Unsponsored.
High Mileage.
Native Texan with Dallas ties.
Her coach is a big John Kellogg fan.

The more I think about it is the more I realize she and her coach are like a modern day/ better version of Wejo/Kellogg- with the big difference being she's actually good at the marathon. ;)

On serious note, when I read the email from her coach saying she couldn't get in to the Stanford 10,000 (and this isn't even Payton Jordan), I was like "A 2:31 marathoner can't get in to Stanford? That's a joke. Let's send her to World xc."

Now that I've talked to her, it's an even better story.


USA steeplers under 40 with 8:19 PRs

Donn Cabral
Brian Olinger
Ben Bruce
Corey Leslie
Fam (not under 40... still kind of running though)

I think that’s it. Whoever it is, send ‘em!
