MileSplit reached Alex to gain further insight on his performance:      

"I went into the race just hoping to get a really good work-out in for the day.  I went out in 4:48 for the first mile and felt very controlled and focused.  I wanted to be in control, but still push the pace.  Following the race, I did a 3 mile tempo run on the roads with a 5:30 pace.  I was happy to be able to take my spikes off and hit 16:30 for 3 miles, starting just ten minutes after my event concluded.  I was also pleased with how the younger guys on the team stepped up; they proved to have mature racing ability and showed that our team has a lot of potential this year."
