Jen Rhines Won't Defend USA 15K Road Title

Jen Rhines started off 2011 with a bang, winning USA road titles in the half-marathon (January, above) and 15K (in March). Unfortunately, 2011 did not end as well as she had hoped, with her DNF at the New York City marathon. Jen's 2012 started off with a below par 64th place finish at the USA Olympic marathon trials. The 2012 version of the 15K road championship is being held this Saturday in Jacksonville, Florida and Jen Rhines will not attempt to defend her title. All her attention is focused on getting ready for the 10,000 meters at US Olympic Trials this summer, as Rhines seeks her fourth Olympic team.
