Jennifer, Jennifer, Jennifer

Jen Thomas took a little trip out west this weekend to the University of Washington Last Chance Indoor Track Meet. She wanted to show the college punks a thing or two about running the 800. And, boy did she.

She scored a 4 second PR to take second overall in a big studette time of 2:13.28 (see below)

1 Amy Egan Utah State 2:10.43
2 JENNIFER THOMAS Unattached 2:13.28
3 Kailey Campbell Washington 2:13.39
4 Karissa Carlson Unattached 2:21.64
5 Jenna Dorsey-Spitz Runner's Roost/R 2:25.29
-- Dani Schuster Washington DNF

Now some would say that the time is not legit since it was run on UW's oversize 390 meter indoor track. But, to me, 2:13 is 2:13. I don't care how you slice it. There are still turns to run, it's not downhill, and you have the dry stale air to contend with. Congrats Jen - way to show the young punks how to turn over the legs.

See you on the roads, tracks and trails.

Jen emailed me and said her 200m split was 30-31 sec's and her 400m split was 60-61 sec's.
