      35-36 is a great age for the women.

      Making a comeback

        I love Lagot sitting up higher than everyone up age axis.

          Just curious, what is the correlation with Colorado to have so many qualifiers? Huge numbers for both men and women relative to the population.

          Memphis / serious runner for 3 years / 34 male

          5k - 21:01 (SEP 19) / 10k - 46:30 (SEP 19) / Half - 1:40:17 (NOV 19) / Full - maybe someday

          Races - When will we race again???

            Boulder. People move there to train at elevation.

            Runners run.

              Also one of the more populated altitude states...

              300m- 37 sec.

                Colorado does produce some good runners, for sure. It has an active population, reared at elevation with good high school sports. It would be interesting to go through the list (I'm not gonna do it) and see how many native-born Coloradans are in the trials compared to those who moved there. I suspect the natives are in the minority. In addition to the Denver/Boulder area, Colorado now also has a couple of elite groups training in Colorado Springs

                 

                Arizona is another state with a disproportionate number of people in the trials mostly due to Flagstaff and NAZ Elite.

                  Cragg out on the women's side.  Two years ago she was probably the favorite.

                    I was shocked Cragg is out.  It was going to be tough for her, but cancelling this close is shocking. But if you are horribly sick, what can you do.

                      Stephanie Andre is semi-local to me. I met her at a HM a few years ago. A race she won at a pace fast enough to win the 5k at the same event.

                      Started running (and stopped smoking) a mere 7 years ago. Set the CR for the OKC Memorial marathon last year, too.

                      5k: 18:25 10/19 (solo track TT) │ 10k: 38:56 4/18 │ HM: 1:24:16 11/19 │ M: 3:04:13 11/18

                       

                      Upcoming Races (?):

                      9/5 - Tunnel to Towers 5K

                      9/27 - Run Elk City 5k

                      10/4 - Wurst Race Half

                      10/18 - Hot Chocolate 15k (Pacing)

                      Late Oct./Early Nov. - Some flat, fast marathon (hopefully)

                      3:56 marathoner at heart

                        EmKay Myers. 2:41:16 in Chicago. Local to me. I've never met her and she probably won't win. I think it's cool to know someone from somewhere I live made it in. Plus she said marathon training is easy.

                         

                        https://www.rgj.com/story/sports/college/nevada/2020/02/26/nevada-coach-myers-qualifies-olympic-trials-marathon/4861608002/

                         

                        Myers, 25, ran track for Nevada from 2012 to 2017. Aside from a three-month recovery period after minor ankle surgery, she has continued training ever since graduating.

                        She said training for a marathon is easier than training for track and field because she can motivate herself.

                        "The marathon is a much easier thing to train for, alone, than grinding on a track, for me at least," Myers said. "I don't need a coach yelling at me as much as I did on the track, I guess."

                        1 mile: 5:38 (September 2018)

                        5K: 20:23 (March 2018)

                        10K: 42:11 (May 2018)

                        Half: 1:29* (2019 CIM first half)

                        Marathon 2:59* (2019 CIM)

                        Annual Miles 2,121 miles

                        *CIM is a NET downhill course and the weather is unpredictable.

                         

                        2020 Goal: Short Distance PRs so people won't make fun of me. 

                          My club (CPTC-NB) has 5 women and 1 guy:

                           

                          Aileen Barry

                          Alexandra Bernadi

                          Andrea Bradshaw

                          Jenny Donnelly

                          Natalie Mackenze

                          Matt Rand

                           

                          It does make the trials more fun and engaging with locals to root for (even if they don't have a shot at the team)

                                Here'e a nice analysis of the large number of women who OTQ'ed this year.

                                 

                                Cool. Only quibble is that I don't think the Times analyzed more than a million marathons to determine the effect of Vaporflys.
