Yes/No: Armstrong Top-Five at USA 10K?

The work of elite runners is never done. Fresh off the USA 10 Mile Championships in Minnesota last week, many of the same women will travel to Boston for the USA 10k champs at the Tufts Health Plan 10k for Women on Monday. Two of the athletes running these back-to-back championships include Team USA-MN runners Katie McGregor and Meghan Armstrong.

McGregor and Armstrong are both on a roll, finishing first and fourth respectively at the TC 10 Mile race last week. McGregor was our subject last week, so this week we will turn our attention to Meghan Armstrong with this question...

Y/N: Will Meghan Armstrong finish in the top five at the USA 10k Championship in Boston on Monday?

As mentioned above, Meghan Armstrong has been running very well lately. In addition to her three-minute PR for fourth place at the USA 10 Mile Champs, she was also fourth at the USA 5k Championships in September. Other top runners in this race include U.S. 5000 meter record-holder Molly Huddle, 31:21 10k runner Katie McGregor, three-time Olympian Jen Rhines and Renee Metivier-Baille - who ran 54:37 to finish second at the USA 10 Mile champs last week.

My answer: Yes

The fantasy contest question from last week was: Will Katie McGregor win the USA 10 Mile Championship at the TC 10 Mile this Sunday? The answer was yes. McGregor won her sixth TC 10 Miler in a time of 54:21. Twenty two contestants answered correctly this week. There were no changes at the top of the board as the top nine contestants all said yes.
