asics Greenville Track Club-ELITE - a post-collegiate, Olympic development program
ASICS Greenville Track Club-ELITE athlete Ricky Flynn ran 4:58 per mile to place 48th at the 2015 USA Half Marathon Championships in Houston, TX on Sunday morning. After passing the 10-kilometer split in 30:06 (4:51 per mile pace) and 15K in 45:33, Flynn slowed somewhat over the final 6K to finish in 1:04:56. That time would have qualified him for the 2016 USA Olympic Team Marathon Trails, if he had not already qualified in Duluth's Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon last June. Ricky's personal best for the distance is 1:03:44.
