    Given Rose is more of a sprinter and jumper than a long or middle-distance runner, the 800m time of 2:12 stands out, is darn impressive (to me). I don't know what her personal best is, but that is a really good time for the hep. The 200m time is impressive too .. would be #8 on NDSU all-time list, though off her personal best. Finishing 13th overall is super. We always want our athletes to win or get Personal Bests (PBs), but #13 in the US is still excellent. Nice job .

    Just checked ... Laura Roesler's 800m time at the U.S. Championships - the 8th best time (2:00.84), though she did not make the final - is the 87th best 800m time so far this year. Hard to believe, I would have thought it would be a Top 20 world time. There are 19 women in the world who have run under 2:00 so far this year, some have run under 2:00 multiple times. All of this is astonishing. This must be the toughest year ever for the 800m for the women and it is not even an Olympic year.

    It will be interesting to see Laura run in Europe this summer. She will be in London and Rabat in July. This is what the rest of the world did today:

    Laura ran 2:02.45, took first place.
    This was in Cork, Ireland.
    A good training run for her (in respects). Although a modest time from a world standpoint, the victory should help as a confidence boost.
    She was in Morocco last Friday. Got to be tough to manage the training schedule with the travel (time on planes, in airports, in unfamiliar places where it may not be obvious where there is a track for training), the time zone changes, meet days when there usually is no training, and so on.

    Good luck on the upcoming London meet.
