Katie Matthews is one of the key pieces to the young BAA High Performance Group, and she’s determined to help put Boston back on the map. “Everybody’s up in arms about who people can people can possibly train in boston, but like you know Bill Rogers did it, Bill Squires did it, people have done it.” For her part, Katie ran well on Saturday at the BAA 5k. Despite not feeling like she’s in the best of shape at this point in the year, Katie ran a 16:07 and finished 3rd in her age group (but first American). Overall she placed 50th in the entire field and was the 15th female.
