Minnesota Updates

A few updates on some Minnesota runners.  As noted in Meghan Peyton's interview, her teammate Jamie Cheever was "on the bubble" for being on the US team going to Scotland in January for the BUPA Great Edinburgh International Cross Country Team Challenge.  Team USA Minnesota's Pat Goodwin confirmed that they were notified that Cheever does have a spot on the team in addition to McKenzie Melander.  Also that Augsburg and Team USA Minnesota coach Dennis Barker will be part of the US coaching staff for that event.  Twin Cities Track Club runners Stephanie Price and Joe Moore also were selected to represent the US in Scotland.

Another Team USA Minnesota member, Andrew Carlson, who was supposed to run the ING New York City Marathon, which was cancelled after Superstorm Sandy hit,  will make a return trip to Houston in January, where he ran his debut marathon at the US Olympic Trials in 2012, to compete in the Chevron Houston Marathon on 1-13-13.  So will TCTC's Mike Reneau.
