Happy Birthday, Jen Rhines

Jennifer Rhines has established herself as the second most accomplished runner in the history of Villanova track and field, below only the great Sonia O'Sullivan. A short list of Jen's highlights include: five individual NCAA championships while running for Villanova (3 outdoor 5000s, 1 indoor 5000, and an individual title at NCAA cross); four top-30 finishes at World Cross (including two top-20 finishes); three USA olympic teams at three different distances (5000, 10,000, and marathon), a USATF 10,000 meter national champion; a USATF 15K national title; two top-10 IAAF World Championship 5000 meter finishes; a sub-15:00 5000 meter PR; a sub-2:30:00 marathon PR; and a world top-10 ranking at 10,000 meters. The list could go on. Today Jen turns 36 and is still a dominant force on the US track scene.
