Konstanze Klosterhalfen's 31:01.71 German 10,000 National Record, Ajee Wilson's 1:58.93 Win Highlight Texas Qualifier

The event ended up being a bit of a misnomer as few qualifying times were earned as 11 days after 7 degree temps (-13.9 C) were in Austin, warm and humid conditions (73 degrees (22.9C), 65 dew point, 76% humidity) made fast times difficult in the long distance events. But Klosterhalfen and Wilson were impressive as was 5000 meter man Justyn Knight (3:36.62) who dropped down and spanked the milers in the 1500.
