Where is Kim Conley?

Postby Gleason » Fri Feb 21, 2014 4:01 pm

I can't find her name in entries for 1500 or 3000 at USAT&F, despite her excellent times in 2014. Does anyone know why she isn't entered?

She's training for a fast 10K at Cardinal meet.
Will join Molly Huddle (and???) in pursuit of sub-31:00.
She said this in an interview at Millrose.

Thank you. I recorded Millrose, but didn't see an interview with her, so I appreciate the info.

OOPS!! :oops:

I got Conley's plans right, but it was a different interview.
She said it in an interview prior to her race at the NB meet!
Here's the link:

Thank you for the link. Are they running the 10K at Stanford to make the standard for the 2015 World Ch?

They haven't yet announced the 2015 World Champs standards or qualifying window, but the 10,000 window "should" start May 1, as for the past few World Champs cycles, so, yes.

Thank you for the link. Montgomery HS has had some fine runners in the past. I've lived in Silicon Valley for 40 years, but Santa Rosa is in another section, so I was unaware of her hs performances. Making the Olympic team after failing to qualify for NCAA is exceptional. I hope that she and Huddle break 31 because only eight women did in 2013.

Thank you for directing me to the story. I had not known that she and Lauren Wallace were college teammates and that she and Sara Bei Hall were high school teammates. Conley may have been in 9th grade when Hall was in 12th grade because of their 3 year age difference. These runners show how post college support helps athletes.

the finding of the story is pure serendipity, as it didn't show up in any of our "automated" trolls for track-related links.

but I'm off in wine country for the weekend, and the inn didn't have any San Francisco Chronicles, much to my chagrin (it being, for better or worse, my "hometown" paper). Instead they had the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat, and lo and behold, 2/3 of the front page of the sports section was the Conley piece.
