LINCOLN — Nebraska senior distance runner Jessica Furlan knows just how hard it is to fill the shoes of Husker star Ashley Miller, the three-time All-American and four-time conference champion who graduated last year.
As Miller’s training partner, Furlan sees those shoes every day. Miller lived with Furlan for the first semester. They ran together, cooked together, talked shop together.
