Shannon Rowbury speaks with RunBlogRun after 3000m, video and story by Larry Eder


Shannon Rowbury came down from the proverbial mountaintop (7,500 feet) to run the Boston Indoor Grand Prix 3000 meters, finishing third in 8:41.94. She finished behind new training club mate, Sifan Hassan (8:40.99) as both felt the fury of Hellen Obiri, Olympic silver medalist at 5000 meters, who ran 8:39.08, the world leader.

This was a quick Instagram video (60 seconds). I apologize as I am just getting hang of this. Shannon told us she felt pretty good with the return from altitude. She now has races at Millrose and the US Indoor nationals, I believe.

The AR holder at 1,500 meters and 5000 meters, Shannon was in the hunt all race. She looked strong and just a bit short of the patented Rowbury kick. Always a pleasure to speak with, Shannon is a real talent.
