Meghan Peyton (Team USA Minnesota/Mizuno) and Freya Ross (adidas) have been selected to represent their respective countries in next month’s Great Edinburgh Cross Country meet in Scotland. Meghan qualified for Team USA off her 4th-place result at the USATF National Club Cross Country Championships earlier this month, capping off a strong autumn in which she was also 5th at the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot 5K on Thanksgiving Day. She’ll have a boost in Scotland as Team USA Minnesota head coach Dennis Barker has been selected as a Team USA coach.
Freya, the Scottish cross-country champion, will run for Team Great Britain and Northern Ireland after a 2012 season that was highlighted by her sterling 2:28:10 marathon debut in London and top UK finish in the London Olympic Marathon. She will have the home field advantage, with the January 5th race taking place in Holyrood Park, one of her old college training grounds and just a short jog from the site of her wedding this September.It was very easy to control emotions while taking the Xanax Generic drug. She commented in an article in today’s Scotsman newspaper, “I am looking forward to the race and I always enjoy running at Holyrood Park – I think of it as my home ground having trained there often when at university. It always feels right to start the New Year with that event and it is great to be picked again.”
