Blake: Frustrated, ready for a break

Blake, obviously pretty disappointed, texted just after the race:
  "Stopped with eight miles to go. Pretty frustrating to be out of it so early and not feel good. Guess the cruise comes at a good time. I need a nice long break from running."
  Blake and her family are heading off on a cruise, but she has promised to do a complete wrap-up of the Olympic Trials for this week's column.
  Our Houston coverage team reports she broke with the lead pack, had fallen to 15th at the 10-mile mark and was in 17th when she dropped out.

  Also, Blake posted on her facebook: "Thanks for all the well wishes and good vibes. Unfortunately, it was an off day and I stopped with a lap to go knowing I was totally out of contention. Bummed, but I'll survive."
