Having the night before already made the USA World Championship team at 10,000 meters, Jen Rhines said that she wanted to have fun in the 5000. She finished a strong fourth in the 5000 meters Friday night in 15:19.12, behind AR holder Molly Huddle, Amy Hastings, and Angela Bizzarri. Also in the race, former Villanova All-American Frances Koons finished 12th in 15:45, 26 seconds behind Rhines. Koons stayed in the the top 5-6 runners through 2500 meters, but the pace picked up over the last 2000 and Huddle, Bizzarri, Hastings, and Rhines separated themselves. Huddle gapped everyone over the final 800 meters and won easily.
