Cecilia's Huge Breakthrough, Wednesday Workout and GRC in the News


Congratulations to Cecilia for achieving the USATF A standard! On Saturday Cecilia won the 800 at the New Jersey International Track meet in 2:03.87, which qualifies her for the USATF championships in Sacramento at the end of June.  And to cap off her night, shortly after the race Cecilia was invited to run in the Diamond League meet in New York on Saturday. No, I'm not kidding--she's running well enough that she has the opportunity to race against a world class field.  The fact that she has gained that kind of visibility, while training alone and competing in an event in which she had minimal experience before this season, is truly amazing.  It's been a whole lot of fun for me to watch Cecilia's development this spring, and considering that she has improved her PR by a full second in the last 8 days, I can say with confidence that she will make some noise at nationals!


Check out this excellent piece on Ivy League alums running for GRC. 



We'll be at BCC on Wednesday for our normal 7:15 start, so meet for the warmup at 6:30.
