On day 2 in the Two Mile, Julia Palin ran an incredibly smart race in 88 degree weather pacing the first mile at 5:30 and crossing 12th with her patience paying off coming back in a 5:31 second mile and with her kick coming in 2nd overall in the emerging elite 2 mile race at Nationals with a 11:01.89 earning her a 2nd place medal.
