Congratulations to Beth for her second place finish in the Miami half marathon in 1:22:28. Beth had Olympic Trials qualification written all over her when she ran 1:17 in Houston last January, but her ascent to greatness was interrupted by a serious injury in the spring. Beth is now fully healthy and she is rapidly making up for lost time, and if I were a betting man, I would go all in on her joining Teal on the starting line at the Trials next February.
Being the eternal optimist, I am holding out hope that we will be able to get on the track on Wednesday. If we can't safely use the track, we can make our joyful return to the tunnel. I have something in mind for that scenario, which I will make known in the event we have to avail ourselves of that less than ideal but viable option.
Either way, we'll roll at 7:15, so meet for the warmup at 6:30. I'll do a recon on Wednesday morning, and if it's clear at that point one way or the other, I'll let you know. If it's a close call, we can make a game time decision.
I'll send the women's workout separately.
See you Wednesday.
