Knowing Coach Spence and Neely, I can guarantee that Neely's best years are ahead. They have always followed a very conservative, long-term approach to training. Neely has made steady improvement year after year, and has had very few injuries. It's something that should be valued in the professional running world. Too many athletes push for immediate results, can't stay healthy, or burn out. Not only do I think Neely has a great shot at making the team in the 10k this year, I think that her longterm career will be one of the best in US distance running, from 5k to marathon. This is the perfect time to give it a shot, and I think any female who has run 15:27 deserves to go for it. Get behind her, big things are going to happen for this one!
