Another pace injection saw Rodenfels, who is from Boston, pulled well clear of the entire field and comfortably away from Venters to build a sizable advantage on her way to a dominating victory over a very strong lineup that included some of the best road runners in the country.

“I thought I would sit back and wait and out-kick them at the end, like – their mistake if they leave me until the end – because besides maybe Jenny Simpson I think I’ve probably got the best kick in the field,” said Rodenfels. “But I just felt too good, I figured I’d just go for it. What do I have to lose?”

Venters of Portland, Oregon, was a distant second place in 32:31, followed by the experienced runner Jenny Simpson of Boulder, Colorado, who posted 32:39 for third place.

Defending champion Erika Kemp of Rhode Island wasn’t able to keep up with the pace today and finished fourth in 32:44, while five-time race champion Molly Huddle of Rhode Island clocked 32:50 to round out the top five.
