The girl who made the race in the NB Games Women's Invite Mile: Nicole Edwards
Washington Heights, NYC - Did pacesetter, Lesley Higgins, do exactly as she was supposed to, making sure it was a fast, exciting race? Yes. Did Erin Donohue, finish the job, and run a world-leading time in the mile, 4:28? Yup. But who was the girl coming up from behind in the last 600, putting the pressure on Donohue to push her to the limit and make that mark, just a half a second behind in 4:29, and an indoor PR? Right, Nicole Edwards, a Michigan Alum, who made the race as far as we're concerned and deserves to be one to watch in the future. Great job and unexpected fun seeing her make a go of it. Let's hope she gets the attention she deserves going forward.
