I think she just missed making the time for this year's USATF nationals in that semi-final run.

Pro runners basically get table scraps unless they're the next big thing (and even then, it's iffy), but if she wants it I hope someone (Saucony?) finds a few scraps for her.

If I read correctly, she will be competing in the nationals (her time of 9:51 was just off the automatic qualifying time of 9:50, but they take the top 32 times in the country of which she is 18th). She told the Daily Chronicle she will only be running in the first round on June 22. If she were to advance to the next round of competition it would be on June 24 which is her wedding day, and she told the DC she is not going to miss her wedding to run.

She finished 14th tonight in the qualifying round of the US Nationals which was good enough to capture the last spot for Saturday's national finals. Great last race as an NIU athlete. As noted earlier, she is getting married on Saturday and won't compete on Saturday for the championship.
