After taking the 10K crown Friday at the Miromar Lakes Beach and Golf Club in Miromar, Fla., Twichell once again edged out a competitive field in Sunday's 5K race. The Fayetteville, N.Y., native finished in 58:54.17, just ahead of Emily Brunemann (58:54.47) in second and Christine Jennings (59:11.01) in third.
"That's how these races go," Twichell said. "You race really hard for 40 minutes and then you push yourself harder for the final 15 minutes."
With her top-two finish in Friday's 10K, Twichell earned a trip to the Olympic qualifier event in Setubal, Portugal on June 9.
