Anytime you have two athletes make history, Laura Morrison (3rd) and Bonnie Binggeli (9th) both ran top ten all time performances, then you know things are moving in the right direction. I am very impressed with how the team has overcome some key runners missing races, it really shows how tight of a group we have".
