In her first ever race longer than seven miles, Molly Huddle ran for the win at the USATF Women’s 10-Mile Championship in Flint, Michigan on Saturday. Huddle finished fourth overall behind three runners from Ethiopia in the women’s field, as the U. S. Championship title was contested amidst an international field as part of the well-known Crim 10-Mile Road Race.
Just behind Huddle in the race for the national title was Olympic marathoner Magdalena Lewy Boulet, followed by Renee Baillie, Sally Meyerhoff and Kristen Nicolini. It’s worth noting that the top three women all averaged a sub-5:30 minute per mile pace. Who ever said that humans can’t fly?
