Was Shalane Flanagan's bronze medal and American Record run in Beijing the top moment in U.S. distance running in the past decade?

Earlier this week we posted The 10 Best Moments Of The Decade For U.S. Distance Running, compiled by RunningUSA‘s Ryan Lamppa. Topping the list were Mammoth Track Club teammates Meb Keflezighi and Deena Kastor–marathon medalists at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.

Today, we’re asking what YOU think was the top moment in U.S. distance running in the last ten years. Cast your vote, or write in your own pick, in our poll!
