RunBlogRun American Athlete of the Month, January 2014: Galen Rupp, from the Shoe Addicts


Galen Rupp ran 13:01.26 for the 5,000 meters on January 16, 2014, and then, on January 25, 2014, came back and ran 8:07.41, both American records. Galen's 5,000 meters was the fastest 5,000 meters ever run in the month of January. For those two performances, RunBlogRun gives Galen Rupp our first American athlete of the Month Award!

Thanks to the Shoe Addicts for producing the video salute.
