This is the feature by Dave and Jane Monti of Race Results Weekly on the excellent win last weekend, at the Mastercard NY Mini 10-K, by Sara Hall, as she gears up for the U.S. Olympic Trials.
Just how good is Sara Hall? I think that she finally is accepting her own talent, and her drive and focus seem better than any time in her career. The steepler via 1,500m, turned 5,000m, then marathoner, now marathon and 10,000m athlete has been a unique evolution.


The Boston 10k for women is one of the most important women's only events in the country. Founder in 1977, just five years after the first AAU women's marathon championships and public opinion was mixed on the safety of women running long distances. Just so you know, it was total BS. Women have run for over a century in races. In 1972, the Olympics added 1,500m for women. In 1984, the women's marathon was added to the schedule.

The Boston 10k for Women has had amazing fields for years and has been the official and unofficial big fall 10k of the US fall season.

Nice to see PUMA coming on board. As the PUMA team told us in recent interviews with their team


There has always been a discussion about how to bring the team idea into the marathon. The team at RunCzech, one of the premier road race development teams in Central Europe, has just the idea. You can watch it tomorrow where ever you are!

Great to see that NYRR is getting back, as it is safe, to hosting elite competitions.

Des Linden recently set a 50k world best. Just a couple days ago, Des Linden, 2018 Boston Champion and huge sports draw, will run the 2021 BAA Boston Marathon in October 2011.

Des Linden continues to enjoy her running and share those experiences with us!

Des Linden is a huge social media draw on @runblogrun.

NN Running team brought Abbott into the NN Mission Marathon as a sponsor. I'm interested in Abbott's bio sensor.
