Kaitlin Goodman, née Gregg (Former Davis HS, UC Davis runner)

Awesome 10K race for Kaitlin this past Friday at Stanford Invitational as she finished in 3rd place in a new lifetime best time 32:09.82 (77.29 per 400 for 25 laps). According to her dad Bill (Davis HS coach), she finished the last 9 laps of the race in 11:20.3 (She also ran the last 3200 in 10:04.0, last 1600 in 4:55.0 and last 400 in 69.2). Kaitlin has made great improvements from her high school running days. Her high school PR in the 1600 was 5:18.22 (also ran 11.27.x 3200m.). She improved to 16:21.99 in the 5K as a senior at UC Davis. Her 10K PR before Friday's race was 33:01.03

You can check out her finish at Friday's 10K which is Flotrack's Kick of the Week here:

You can check out Kaitlin's blog at the following link where she has chronicled her pursuit of the Olympics. She is definitely a great example of someone who has continued to develop as a runner and will be an Olympic contender without the fanfare of high school and college superstardom.

Check out her blog as well and read "Have a little faith".
