February 16, 2021. 6:45am. Kezar Stadium, San Francisco, California.
A real, live, in-person track meet has felt unfathomable during these Dark Ages of racing. But thanks to Trials of Miles and Citius Mag, Holly and Lizzy have landed the cherished opportunity to run a real, live track meet at the end of the month: an elite invitational in Austin called the Texas Qualifier.
The next two weeks, their training will be laser-focused to prepare for this special chance to PR in the developmental heat of the 5000m in Austin. Today featured a set of 800s at race pace or faster. Holly and Lizzy were joined by Tasia, who was running her first workout after a long bout of injury. In typical Tuesday morning fashion, a slew of speedy friends populated the track for various workouts to help create an electric atmosphere at sunrise.
11 days until the Texas Qualifier.
