RRW: For Galen Rupp, Making A Fifth Olympic Team Is A Powerful Incentive

Talking about the Olympic Trials Rupp said, "It's been a real big build-up; it's been going really well." But he added that with the focus on the Trials, he isn't "in the greatest half-marathon shape" coming into Houston. "That would be tremendous. Obviously, I've got to get it done on the day.  That's one of the brutal, but fun, things about the system we have here, that it all comes down to getting it right and being in the top three on race day.  I think that pressure is great and really prepares Team USA for when we go to the Olympics to get it done there."
