She said she wanted to improve her P.B to see what she was really capable of, yet chose a notoriously slow course to run on. I think she needed to drop a couple of minutes off that time to guarantee selection. She's had 2 solid runs but nothing to indicate she can really challenge at the Marathon so far and I'm not sure that the further the distance the better she gets.
She might be forced to run London again or leave it to chance that Claire Hallisey or Liz Yelling don't run faster than her, though I think they would have to run 2.26 or so to nudge Jo out of the team.
On the positive side, of all the contenders for that last spot Jo has by far the best credentials, she's been an unsung member of the team for years and should things not work out then surely she's also got the best chance of getting the qualifying time for the 10k
