a friend was in boston and here's his recap of the race...
Just got back to my room after the meet. For those who did not see it. Cain was behind the pacer for 50 meters before wisely backing off. Only Gebrselassie and Maritinez tried to stay with Dibaba and the pacer (Hyman) and later paid the price. After Hyman stepped off, Dibaba kept pushing, Gebrselasse fell back first and then Martinez. Soon, Dibababa was gone and the pack swallowed the other 2 up and eventually spit them out the back. You follow Dibaba at your own risk. She the rest of the way in solitary , majestic fashion to another dominant victory. (#6 all time)



Back in the land of the mortals, the pack was keeping together. Cain was hanging in, at first in back, then at times moving to the middle but never letting a gap open. The announcer did a good job keeping us aware of her splits vs the high school record (fairchild 8:55.92 in 1995). It soon became obvious that she was going to take a big chunk off that record. As the pack started to push the pace runners started to get dropped but Cain stayed with the leaders. In the last 100 she showed off her kick again as reeled in everyone but Reed.




She smashed the HS record by 17 seconds! For perspective, her pace was 4:49.64 per mile, while the Girls junior mile in the same meet was won in 4:48.94. She finished the top American in a meet with 4 other Americans with serious credentials. I have not seen a deep all time list for the USA in W 2mile (not run very often after all). I have Amy Rudolph at #7 with a 9:35.66. Cain cannot be very far down that list.

See the list I provided earlier.
I posted USA Top 15 women's indoor 2 milers, plus where two other Boston finishers are on the list.
But note that the 2 mile is rarely run, so MANY of the top USA women have NOT run the race....especially indoors!!
(3200 marks are NOT included!!)
Cain's pretty high on the list, but I still think she can take another 15-20 seconds off her time.....NOW!!

http://usa.milesplit.com/articles/99695 ... -3754-300m

video for race will eventually be placed in coverage spot which has a places holder, probably after the espn2 tv coverage from 2-4pm eastern

i think cain ran safe last night, the 4:49 pace was controlled,

i think 4:45 pace is within her ability now

your projection of 4:40 pace in a set up race with pacers might be possible, buti'd wait till outdoors to feel more comfortable about that

listening to her interview, she wasn'tgetting the actual splits thru the race, seemed to be more on feel, didn't know 3k time

at end of interview rupp walks by and camera pans over to alberto

after millrose, the question for me , is whether cain does the usatf national indoors, or is she shutting down to prepare for outdoor??

He's using the split chart on the flash results site which give a final split of the 9:07. That is not a 3000m split though.


so people understand what those splits are, they're taken by the camera at the finish line. Since 2M is c218m longer than 3000m, the starting line is 18m down the track, so the first split (which you'll note for everybody is a couple of seconds slower) is for 218m, and all the subsequent splits have 200m added to that, so 418, 618, etc., etc.

So the actual 3000 split was taken at the race's start line (15 laps), not the finish.

Interesting question -- she ran 2:03.34 in 2012. Seems reasonable to think she would be a bit faster now, e.g., 2:02.

Good point, Marlow. This list of records interesting to think about, for Cain. Given that she's already run faster indoors than the outdoor mile, 3k, & 2 mile records, one can reasonably think she will get those. As for the 5k records -- with the normal assumptions in place (good health, continuing development, appropriate racing opportunities) -- it seems reasonable as well to think that someone who can run 3k around 9:00 and 2 miles under 9:40 can reach these 5k records. Fewer opportunities to approach the 10k time, but it might be feasible, too.

I would think the really hard ones would be at 800, especially Kim Gallagher's 2:00.07. I know that Cain has "only" 2:03.34, so it might be easy for some to underestimate that time, and her capacity at that distance. However, when you look at the World Youth lists from 2012, only one other athlete born in 1996 was faster than Cain at 800. And, perusing the world Youth and Junior 800 lists from 2012, one sees that most -- perhaps almost all -- of the 800 times faster than hers were run in national or international competition, whereas Cain's 2:03.34 was run in a high school meet (and not a national hs invitational, or even the state championship meet, iirc). Had she run that race with other 2:01-2:03 competition, I'm confident she would already have a PB faster than 2:03.34. So, I think she has more capacity at 800, but that 2:00.07 looks daunting -- that was Kim Gallagher, after all -- an extraordinary prep athlete.

The outdoor girls 5K is 15:48.91 by Emily Sisson in 2010.
Cayla Hatton is second on the out list with her 15:50.32 from the WJC last year!!

But Cain could almost certainly go sub-15:30, so if she runs one, she'll get the record!!

I agree that the 800m record is the toughest and might not be achievable. All the other ones she doesn't already hold are achievable but I'm not sure she runs a track 5000m in HS.

The 10,000 is as hard as that listed 5000m and probably pushes her range too much.

salazar is quoted the 1500 is mary cain's sweet spot

even the 3k/2 mile is a bit long for her

i'd presume 5k/10 k would be much too lomg, the longer the race the less ideal for her

my recollection from indoor 800 last year is twotimes cain ran had ajee wilson in the race for her 2 best times and cain was 2nd both times

here's thenewbalance indoor 800 from last year

http://www.runnerspace.com/video.php?video_id=61486

i see cain 800 as her 2nd event with 1500/mile her best

Baxter handled Cain in XC because of that, plus Baxter looks like a 'strength' (distance, the more the better) runner, while Cain is a 'speed' runner. Speed runners need to establish a set rhythm to maximize their talent. While I am now convinced that Cain could break the 5000 record, I see no urgency in it, and would agree with Salazar if they choose not to go after it.

i think the mud was a major factor in xc

with the millrose her next announce race, interesting to see what salazar has planned for outdoor


for 2014 eugene junior, does she do both 3k and 1500??

does she skip indoor national. or give 1500 a shot

2012 she did do 800 at olumpic trial

will she give des moines a shot at 1500 for the experience..

will she try the pre meet and ny grand prix

any chance she gives europe a try

my crystal ball says she skips indoor national

penn relayshas a womens mile on saturday of the meet

id bet on pre and ny and desmoines

skip europe

It's hard to remember she's ONLY 16 years old. Does one strike while the iron is hot (who knows what the future may bring?) or does one let it cool so it doesn't become brittle in the tempering (blacksmith analogy! :wink: ).

She ain't your "normal" 16 year old!!
(Well, in her over-use of "like" and "you know" in her sentences, yes, she is!! :lol: )
In her running, and in her interviews post-race, she seems several notches above your "normal" 16 year old.
She uses good strategy, hasn't made any mistakes as far as I can see (getting boxed, falling, running a stuttered pace, etc).
But let's look at her (and other's) history.

Cain took four hours of SAT's last week, then two hours later, crushed two HSR's!!!
Cain maintains a 4.0 GPA (as far as I know), and now holds FOUR HSR's....and still attends class, does her homework, etc etc.
She sounds VERY poised in her interviews.
I mean, here she is, just a teenager, and she's the STAR of the Boston GP meet, and has many media people pressing microphones in her face, and yet she NEVER flinches, never shakes or shivers in her running shoes, and sounds (even with all those "likes" and "you knows") like a VERY well-spoken, knowledgable, and charming "kid".

As for history, Mary (Decker) Slaney, Zola Budd, Heike Drechsler, and any number of Kenyans and Ethiopians, have been at Mary's level....or better at age 16.
Cain seems to be very comfortable being who she is.
She seems to be having lots of fun, and has a great sense of humor. ("I was racing an Olympian.....for two seconds!!")
I think Mary Cain is several notches above being just a teenager!!
She may be in chronological age, but NOT in any other way!!!

I say, go for it....NOW!!

i think cain needs outdoor training with early season 800 to max her speed base

if we say 4:05 1500 is her target, we need to do some 800 interval work

this year has been very cold, with indoor training only possible

2014 eugene 1500 is her target

for me i'd do the 2 usa diamond league meets


25 MAY 2013

adidas Grand Prix

01 JUN 2013

Eugene SDL - Prefontaine Classic

Eugene, OR


30 JUN 2013

British Athletics Birmingham Grand Prix

Birmingham

26 JUL 2013 - 27 JUL 2013

British Athletics London Grand Prix

London (CP)

but alberto knows way more than i d, so i'm as patient as he is

INDOORS 2012, cain had 2 800 with ajee wilson, so she had them last year

aroonk mentioned cain's 4.0+ gpa
i have a friend who went toswarthmore andmba from wharton, and lives in bronxville now, confrims cain is a top noth student, and couldgo anywhere she wanted

harvard, colombia, stanford

but is unlikely to run in college

i suspect cain has already accepted the salazar running option

his interview, he basically says, he'll get her in better shape

the key point is 3k/2 mile is too long, that she's a 1500/mile girl using ajee wilson as the model ajee is going to temple for kinesiology which is close to her home

felix at ucla is the same model..

cain, what interests her probably drives where she goes, probably closeto home too

boston 2miler video available now

use te control bottom right to enter full screen


Was waiting for that!!
WOW!!
First, Tirinesh Dibaba is something ELSE!!
On her own for the last 11 laps, she runs NEGATIVE splits (4:39 and 4:34), with a 65 final 400 (440??)!
She is STRONG, in GREAT shape, and probably could get the indoor record (2 miles) with better competition.

As for Mary Cain, what more can one say?
PHENOMENAL!!
As the announcer said towards the end of the race, "she's 16, but she runs more like she's 26!!".
So true, so true!!
She's shattering HIGH SCHOOL records left and right, and is just an 11th grader, but she RUNS like she's a NATIONAL class runner!!
Maybe not ready to medal in the USATF, or make the team this year for the WC, but she'd definitely be able to make the US finals....in the 1500...or 5000!!

I hope she runs a 5K outdoors...maybe at Mt SAC or Stanford.
TOTALLY impressed with her run!!

http://www.flotrack.org/coverage/250016 ... m-Rupp-733

heres the rupp 3k race with gebriwith

i dont see cain doin 5k in mt sac or stanford, but salazar could surprise me

i see her going down in distance, doing 800 training

there's an open mile at penn relays on saturday

thursday is distance night with college kids trying to get ncaa quals..

2013 1500 moscow trials in desmoines might well be her biggest 2013 look to meet

i do bet on the ny diamond leage and eugene diamond league

and i could see her do birmingham in england and london diamond league meets..

2014 world junior in eugene would be here primary target

Question to az2004:

Why do you say she might do the two British meets this summer??
Why those two, and not some others (Zurich, Bislett, Golden Gala, etc.)??

I DO hope she goes to Europe this summer!

for me i prefer she do lower key euro races than the big ones you mentioned

john henwood is her coach in nyc, he would know whats planned...

coaching@johnhenwood.com PH 212 731 9149 that's direct from his website

for outdoors, the 2 usa based diamond league meets

end may is nyc 1500 avaialble

early june is prefontaine in eugene 800 3000 5000 available

june 30 birmingham 1500 available

july 26-27 london 800 3000 5000

desmoines trials mid june do 1500 trials

my question concerns 800 or 3000 in diamond leage meets

i'd try doing 800 for the speed work to sharpen her 1500

in listening to john henwood, seems 1500 is more the key now, but she may grow into a great 5k type

i'd see 2014 world junior in eugene and doing both 800 and 1500

JFK TO HEATROW/BIRMINGHAM are easy flights. as she lives in bronxville, affluent suburb of nyc

i have a friend who lives in bronxville and home is worth 1.5 million

i was looking at info for henwood

got the info from his website...

seems he has a number of lower level athletes

seems salazar picked him as the hands on day to day guy with cain

27:45 10k 13:30 5k sub 4 mile

2004 10k olympian for new zealand

that's a very decent resume

i asked john henwood about possible post millrose plans..

he responded..

Only Alberto can give out answers to those questions. But I know for sure that she won't be flying out of the country for Diamond league meets during school.




Thanks

John

I can see a phone call or two in John Henwood's future should the kid run a poor race somewhere along the line. :lol:

I've followed T&F for over 50 years, and had read every word of T&FN, but up till he started coaching Cain, I'd never heard of Henwood!!

As to Mary running a 5K or 10K this spring outdoors, if not at Mt SAC or Stanford, she could do what Cayla Hatton did last year....hop into a college men's 10K in a small college meet somewhere!!
Her time of 33:17 is listed in Jack Shepard's HS Track this year as the 2nd fastest HS girls 10K ever.
If Shepard sees that mixed race, collegiate race as okay for record purposes, the same would go for Cain.
That way, she wouldn't have to travel very far....just go to the nearest college and convince the people there to let her into the race!!

2004 olympics, henwood did run the 10k

and 2:15 in new york city is good, think he was 13th

because he was a kiwi i didn't know of him

that;s why i searched his name once it became known to me

article on front page hasay says cain should run in college

cain is running well above that level, so using college seems a mistake to me

i think ajee wilson and cain are the model for the new elite model

hasay never had the base speed either of those 2 girls currently have

hasay at 5k or 10k might well be a nice runner

cain will do college, but i suspect she will not run in college

I don't think we'll see Cain in a 5000m and certainly not a 10,000m race this year.

i fully agree, 5k and 10k are way in her future

i see the 2014 eugene junior meet as her primary event

with the 1500 her main event

she did 2.03 800 last year, and if she doubles, i see it more in the 800 than the 3000

i think baxter and hasay can be real good 10k types
