The New England area was well represented in the 10k yesterday at Payton Jordan, with Ben True (previously posted on that one), Tim Ritchie and Jeannette Faber of the BAA, and Heidi Westover (unattached???) all competing.
First up was Heidi Westover:
Heidi ran a 33:24.39, good for the Trials ‘B’ standard.
Next up was Tim Ritchie:
And last was Jeannette Faber:
Jeannette ran a 33:55.55, which is yet another Trials ‘B’ standard. She looked good way out in front of the field early (she was right behind the early leader, which was Patterson, I think).
Gotta be honest with you, I didn’t have a chance to go back and watch all of these 10k’s yet. Congrats to Heidi, Jeannette and Tim for attaining a Trials standard time. Hopefully it’s good enough to get them into the Trials. It might be tough for Ritchie with that time though, since he was 27th in his heat and only 24 get into the Trials. Tim’s heat was more like a road race (gotta give the Flotrack guys credit for that line), with 46 guys on the line!!! It looked like it might be tight for Jeannette and Heidi as well, just going by those times.
