Shalane is eighth in World’s at Moscow

August 12, 2013

Shalane1Running on an indoor track is quite different from runing a marathon in Boston’s spring weather. Shalane Flanagan placed eighth in the world in the women’s 10,000 meter in Moscow. Her time was 31:34:83. She holds the American national title in the event. The winning time in Moscow was 30:43:35. Shalane’s Olympic Bronze medal time was 30:22:22. Training for both marathons and the 10K makes her a “hybrid” athlete, which she says, for now, “I have to be okay with that.”((Salem News, 8/12/13, pg. 10.))
