I was just over at Let'sRun searching for any videos from Cain's race tonight.
Boy, are their Message Board people a bunch of hard ass you-know-whats!!
They have a thread there saying Cain elbowed Reid and tripped Hasay during the race.
But that's not the worst of it.
Not by a mile!! (sic!)

They said some VERY hateful and harsh things about not only Cain, but also about Hasay!!
Personal things!
I won't repeat them!!
They're too ugly!!

The kid is just 16 years old!!
Is that the way these creeps treat 16 year old girls??

Come on, Let'sRun, either clean up your Message Board.....or make those creeps apologize to Mary and Jordan!!

I ain't going back there....ever!!

No need to apologize. It helped contribute to further "entertaining" posts. :D

I think Al leaves Cain under the watchful eye of Henworth so Al was not seen.

The Women's mile went pretty much as I expected with Sheila Reid winning.

-Sheila Reid I think is now the 4th best womens miler in North America after Rowbury, Simpson and Uceny. I noticed in the last two races she ran with Mary Cain she got Mary to take a Victory lap with her. I wonder how she will feel in the next year or two if Mary C. starts blowing by her on the last lap.

-Mary Cain...what can you say...awesome. But based on her previous times, the 4:28 was about what I thought she would run...so it wasn't unexpected.

-Emma Coburn was the big surprise for me. But thinking about it...it shouldn't have been. She was the only Olympic Finalist in the race, she trains at high altitude and she is built like an Amazon.

-The other runner I was watching was Abbey D. She was the second youngest runner in the race. Her 4:30 is a PR and a great time for a 5K runner. If she could run them all...she has the potential to finish first or second place in the 1,500, 3K and 5K at the NCAA Indoor championships

i can see sheila reid becoming a 5k runner sooner than later

in the start of the race reid applauded when cain was announced

also the victory lap stuuff was class..

on the eson3 interview the part about reid being able to tell her kids, she could tell than she was in the races, when cain set the records

that was class too

I've watched a LOT of Sheila Reid's races, and I hope she sticks to the 1500, only because the 3000 doesn't exist anymore. It's crazy that she had to petition her way into the Olympics last year when she's clearly been the best Canadian woman middle distance runner since the fall of 2010.

I am just as impressed by her well-spoken, refreshing, and genuine interviews. She shows no nervousness and exudes her happiness just for running a PR and enjoying the moment. She seems to be well-grounded and not overwhelmed or full of herself at her accomplishments of the past few weeks.

i'd like to see any video interview after the race last night

sheila reid did have the 2011 ncaa 1500 and 5k double

she is a decent kicker off a tactical race..

but if g dibaba goes 4 flat in 1500 that's a tough race for reid to handle

cain is from bronxville, which is a affuent suburb of nyc

her dad is a doctor,

an anes should be able to easily afford whatever the fee is salazar charges..

Was there a 3000m split taken on Cheserek's 2-mile?

When Lindgren ran old HSR of 8:40.0 he had a HSR of 8:06.3 en route.

Cheserek posted 3018m split in 8:08.40. At even pace that is 8:05.49 at 3000, better than Lindgren.

There was enough foresight to time Cain at 1500m in mile; was same done for 3000m in 2 miles??

actually i think sheila is getting a lot of credit

her comments after the race are getting a lot of praise

and watching the photo album her tactical acumen was veru good

sat dead last for the first 400

moved thru the pack the 2nd 400

asserted control of the race the 3rd 400

made a big break the last 400

they were winning tactics

watchin the race was hard to see what she did, but the photo album slide by slode shows her brilliance

here they are again

just do next and it's easy to see

Abbey D'Agostino Dartmouth College 4:12.73

Abbey has to be the best "local runner" I never heard of in HS. If she ever made a Globe All-scholastic page appearance (CC-IT-Out), I don't remember it.
Obviously she was under the radar and has been outstanding at Dartmouth.

Eh, the only time she's won a big race and been the story was the Penn Relays this year. Each of her cross country and outdoor championships they interviewed Hasay after the race as well.

i think hasay lacks a finish in here races to be a bigtime runner internationally

reid in a tactical race, has a chance with her finish

i watched the race closely tonight

there was contact between cain and hasay, as hasay clipped cain's ankle, then dropped straight back, seemed more incidental than anything



stones did mention it though, but when the pace increases, hasay reacts poorly, olympic trials lst year is an example

i think marcus o'sullivan is doing a great job with reid, he just does not have salazar name value

nice to hear tim hutchings mention sullivan

Not to take anything away from Cheserek's excellent run, but, if I am not mistaken, Lindgren's 8:40.0 was run on a much slower,smaller track. Gerry Lindgren was truly an unlikely talent, difficult to explain.

But congradulations to Cheserek for a new record...about 50 years later.

Lindgren ran on an 11 lap wood surface--utterly different from today's great 200m indoor tracks. So, 8:39 is really superb, but it is not intrinsically better than 8:40 flat nearly half a century ago.

Saw some of the ESPN broadcast (which was pretty good). A few comments...

Even knowing the results & how the races played out, still very impressed with Reid's command in the mile. She looked so good in that win!

This thread's title notwithstanding, I did not expect this to be "Cain v Hasay" -- am guessing most others didn't expect this either. Hasay is having a fine indoor season so far, in this year when she has already stated that she's moving up to 10km. She has a 3k PB, and a solid 5k (i.e., not her PB but one of her better times) so far. I did not expect her to run a particularly fast mile at Millrose -- her 4:36 was slower than her best 1500/mile times, but still in the range of her better times. I doubt if she was focusing her training on this race. She has had good success at NCAA indoors doing the 1500/3k double, but I wonder if she will do that this year, or if she will run the 5k. As many have noted through her excellent collegiate career, she probably will flourish more at longer distances.

Was really impressed with Lagat (again). Because he has done it so successfully so many times, I have a tendency to think of him always being a "sit in the pack and kick away" racer (which he often is). But comparing this race with his range of 3k-2 mile-5k races, it was interesting to see him be the leader in the 2nd half, and carry/push the pace on his own. He did something similar in his 7:34 in Karlsruhe earlier this winter -- he didn't lead as early, but he did take over and push the pace in the latter part of that race (i.e., earlier than "kicking at the end").

Also very impressed with Ben Malone in the hs boys mile.

Cheserek's 3k split was 8:05.46.

(And -- all respect to Cheserek for his record performance -- I agree w kuha's comments above, in the description of Lindgren's performance.)

hasay moving up to 5k/10k is good for her lomg term success,

she talked about that before millrose..

http://www.flotrack.org/speaker/581-Jor ... -Mary-Cain

talks about cain

http://www.flotrack.org/speaker/581-Jor ... rose-Games

and on her current training for 5k/10k

reid looked like she had a plan and just executed it, kudos to marcus o'sulluivan getting her back to her2011 form

on ben malone, he's going to villanov a and i think his event will be 800, again marcus o'sullivan has a talent to develop

sheila reid interview aftef race

Were you worried at all early on? Was dropping to last place in the cards, in the race plan?
Sheila Reid: It was a good field and it went out quick. I’ve got a good feel on that sort of pace. In the back wasn’t slow, it was just not as fast as the front girls. But you should never bank on people coming back to you, so I did have to start cranking it up a notch.


Were the fractions along the way about what you expected?
SR: I think so. I kind of stopped looking after 800. I just wanted to be real comfortable, no quicker than 2:12 through the half. And then, from there on out, I was just trying to feel good, trying to feel out the other girls and how they were feeling.


Did your move to the front come about where you expected?
SR: I wanted to be at the front with 400—not necessarily leading, but near the front and comfortable to the point that I’d be there for the finish. But I felt too good not to go out in front and I was just trying to keep an eye on the Jumbotron to see where the other girls were.



Could you do that? When the crowd started cheering for Mary Cain [who had moved into second and was briefly gaining], were you able to see where she was?
SR: I knew that someone was coming. I suspected it was her because I made no mistake; the crowd was with Mary today, as they should be. She is a phenomenal athlete. And I was in a similar position, leading that chase pack [behind New Balance Indoor Grand Prix winner Tirunesh Dibaba] in Boston in the two-mile, and she was right on my shoulders again there. I’ve got a pretty good feel for her at this point.

I felt comfortable enough that I was kind of pulling up a bit. I had a few more gears, for sure, if I needed them. It’s certainly a bad habit of mine to be looking around, and it drives my coaches nuts. And it’s a bad habit that I should kick.

So it didn’t bother you very much that there was someone else in the race [Mary Cain] who’d being talked about so much in advance.
SR: Oh God, no. Like I said, Mary Cain, her accomplishments thus far are a lot more impressive than mine. It wasn’t really about how much attention I can get before the race. I just want to run well because I enjoy racing.


And you did a victory lap with her. How’d that happen?
SR: I got a victory, and she got probably a relatively bigger victory than I did. If you compare it, I think her mile was a lot more impressive than mine was today. She deserves every bit of the spotlight that she gets. It was fun to be in the race, for sure.
