Two New American Women Track Records 
Courtney Frerichs (Nixa, Missouri) set a new American record at the Diamond League meet in Monaco in 9:00.85 - bettering her previous PR of 9:03.77, which she ran in a spectacular 1-2 finish for Team USATF at the 2017 IAAF World Championships to claim silver. 
 
Reigning USATF Outdoors 5,000m champion Shelby Houlihan (Sioux City, Iowa) set a pending new American record in 14:34.45 while competing in Heusden, Belgium. Houlihan, who also won the 1500m USATF Outdoors title this year, improved upon her previous PR by over twenty seconds (15:00.37).
The new AR breaks Shannon Rowbury’s previous 5,000m record of 14:38.92 set in 2016.

Motivation: Intrinsic or Extrinsic?
by Richard Ferguson
 
Most runners like to get awards at races, especially when they have run well. Even though the medals may be small and the people on the trophies made of plastic, awards are a representation of accomplishment. But what effect do awards really have on human motivation?
