It will be interesting to see how the two comeback guys do here - Solinsky and Webb. both were rallying in the second half of the Stanford race but Webb tailed off while Solinsky matched the leaders 50m up the track for a promising 13:23 (started with a 4:24 'mile'(1600?)).

The pacer is supposed to take them through 3000 in 7:56, which equates to just under 13:13.0 for 5000.
While I was hoping for 1 or 2 of them to go under 13:00, I guess we really shouldn't expect that.
Their purpose being to reach the "A", that pace is just right!

I hope Farah finishes the race, like he did last year.

They do not want to be training for a sub-13 at the point in the season -- they could not hold that peak though USATF/WC. For the top few, they will get opportunities in Europe.

A note - only 60 minutes between the start time for the 1500s and the 5000.

Bolota Asmerom is the pacer. Didn't know that he did that.

Any one know why Bernard Lagat hasn't run a race outdoors yet? Didn't see him at Stanford and now not at Oxy. :(

He ran the anchor leg on one of the DMR teams at Penn in 3:54.38.
Seemed to be in pretty fair shape then.
Probably just training.
And isn't he entered in Pre?
Or NY??

Plus a couple of good indoor races. Kip's in good shape, training well and feeling confident. He's focused on Prefontaine 5000 then USATF 5000 (and of course is planning on making the team for Moscow). In July he's running Paris 1500 and Monaco 5000.

Thanks for the info...Bernard Lagat is an amazing runner...always fun to watch his racing savy plus his smooth fluid stride. :)

Someone said Rupp doubled back from the 1500 and stepped off with 200 to go while in or near the lead. Was that planned? How did Ritz look in the last 200 ... he is such a gritty runner, but without the finishing speed of Farah or Rupp. Thanks ... I hate not being able to watch the events live. :(

Rupp made a move with 800 to go and fell back to 3rd or 4th with 200 to go. I hate to speculate but from my seat it appeared he might have felt the hammy pull and stopped. That's how it looked live, anyways.

Edit: the more and more I think about this, I think I may be misremembering the sequence of events. Rupp may have stepped off with 600 to go; video should be out tomorrow to confirm.

Ritz looked great! Covered Rupp's move and stuck with him through 200 to go about 5 meters back of Farah. Just didn't have the turnover speed to make more of a surge at the end.

Thank you! It helped me to visualize the race. :-) I sure hope it was just a precautionary stop for Rupp.

This race reminded me just a bit of the women's 10K at last year's Trials.
They WANTED an "A", yet followed the pacer's slower start (Supposed to hit 7:56, he hit near 8:00 instead!!).
Why?
And WTF was Farah doing??
LAST place for a couple of laps??!!
No wonder he ran just 13:15.

Ritz looked the best of all.
I think he's in PR shape!!
(In the right race!)

Alan Webb??
I think he should either.....
A) retire, and go home to be a house-husband.
B) turn to the 10K and marathon.
Sad. Very sad.

if you've ever watched Farah race before you'll see that he's practically always in this spot for the first laps so no surprise there ... he doesn't seem to be particularly interested in fast times, more about winning.

For crying out loud - does he owe you people money or something? What happened to "if you can't say something nice..."

Rupp went to the front with a little over 800 to go, towed Mo through to 600 to go while looking around. Could quite easily have finished well, but maybe not with Mo or Ritz due to the earlier 1500. No sign of injury or strain.

Yes, it's unfortunate the field did not go out a little faster, but someone like Mo Farah won't have a problem running under 13:15 in a 5k with a faster field, i.e. DL meet or Pre.
