Analysis: Tuohy will be looking to reclaim her title in this race and even hinted that depending on how she feels come Sunday she could take a crack at Mary Cain's national record time of 9:38.68. If she goes after the record, few will be able to keep up with her pace. Some athletes who will be in the mix for top three finishes are Illinois' Katelynne Hart, who holds the US No. 2 2-mile time with her converted
10:02.46 3200m (10:05.95 2-mile). Massachusetts' Grace Connolly, Ohio's Taylor Ewert and Wyoming's Sydney Thorvaldson are also athletes to keep an eye on.
