Yes! I got a personal record out of this trip to Europe. I ran a 4:17.7 in the 1500m at Ninove. Like Gent, I wasn’t sure how the race was going to feel. My foot was hurting so badly after my steeple in Gent, I wasn’t able to run the next day. The Ninove meet was only three days after Gent, but thankfully my foot was feeling a lot better by the time the race came around.
The race was a perfect set-up for me to run fast. There were quite a few faster women in the race, and there was a pacer going out in 4:14. The weather was sunny and the wind was still. Although there was a lot of jostling the first 2 laps, I only was really cut off once, and I made that lady pay by leaving some spike marks on her calf. After coming through the 800m in about 2:16, I hung on for dear life, and was able to finish pretty strong. I didn’t pass anyone the last lap, but I didn’t get passed either.
