How fast can you run a 5K? 25 minutes? Half an hour? Try 17:41.

Bethel Park’s cross country sensation Emily Carter was amazing once again, running a 5K, in yes, 17 minutes and 41 seconds.

In Saturday’s Red White and Blue Invitational at Schenley Park, Carter kept her win percentage on the season at a cool 1000%.

In a field that was filled with top-notch talent, Carter was, “relaxed” and focused on the task at hand. After the pace was set at blazing speed after mile 1, Carter was confident in her ability.

“I felt very confident after the first mile because it was fast, but it felt really easy,” she said.

Easy indeed. She kept that pace up and crossed the finish line at record time, setting a time that no other runner had ever run on the course at Schenley Park. However, that wasn’t the fastest that she’s ever posted.

“That is my 5K Cross Country record, but I ran a 16:32 at the track at nationals this past summer,” she explained.

*Mind blown.*

Pitt and Duquesne are all in on Carter, as they should be. Missouri, Penn State, UConn, and Princeton are also wanting the humble, soft-spoken star.

Carter will run in the Foundation Invitational next Saturday in Hershey to prepare for the state run later in the year.
