The bar was set high
I have not felt like myself since Beijing and my racing just has not gotten back to the level it used to be. Factor in the fact that the USA women are running better than ever in the marathon, and it’s a hard team to make. Shalane Flanagan’s winning time of 2:25:38 set an Olympic trials record by over 3 minutes. Even the 4th place time of 2:27 by Amy Hastings was one of the fastest times ever run by and American, and did not garner even her a spot on the team.
