A few weeks ago Artie and Rebecca headed to Boston for a few reasons, Rebecca needed a final tune-up race before the 2009 USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, to visit family and friends, and attend Rebecca’s induction into the inaugural class of the Nashoba Regional High School Hall of Fame.
Rebecca would win the 1500m in the New Balance Boston Twilight Series with a new personal record of 4:13.78. The race went as planned and served as indicator for which event Rebecca would choose to race at the 2009 USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships.
