I ran the Emory Invitational in 84, 85, and 86!

Those are good times. How did you like track racing?

From SlowJoe on Sat, Mar 19, 2016 at 16:12:08 from

Wowser, ATC ladies are fast. Looks like you were right in the mix with collegiate athletes, very cool.

From Jake K on Sat, Mar 19, 2016 at 16:50:36 from

Nice race(s)!

I can't believe you passed up the chance for 10,000 on the track last night, though :-)

rob - it was intense and stressful, but it was also very fun. i loved it. it was definitely a big gear shift, esp the 800m...haa. i want to take another shot at it. you can't think, you just have to GO. i'm used to spending 3-5 miles sorting out my kinks and problems, setting up my race strategy, sipping drinks, taking gloves on and off, fa la la.

joe - yes, they are. i feel no shame being dead last on that list. :)

jake - 5000 next fri under the lights! i don't know if i'll be doing a 10000 {*james edit*} this year, but in related news i'm applying to be a rabbit at the trials in eugene (the mascot type, not the runner type).

From Rob Murphy on Sat, Mar 19, 2016 at 18:00:10 from

You nailed it and that's why track racing is so beneficial and why almost EVERY great marathoner has a track background. Competitive intensity! You have no time to over-think things and have just a split second to decide whether to match any move.

So fun!

From Amy Cook on Sun, Mar 20, 2016 at 11:25:42 from

Wow that's some good speed you have there. Running an 800 and 1500 sounds extremely painful to me. Way to go!!

From josse on Sun, Mar 20, 2016 at 13:09:20 from

Great job. I ran the 1500 once and it is an intense race. Yes running against very fast track girls is quite the experience!

From Jason D on Sun, Mar 20, 2016 at 14:37:56 from

Nice double, Allie. I'd love to race a 10k on the track. That's quite a club they have there from the sounds of things.

From steve ash on Sun, Mar 20, 2016 at 17:14:28 from

That is awesome Allie. Looking forward to the Friday Night Lights results.
