LRC talked to Ben True in advance of the 2013 NYRR Dash to the Finishline 5k. We’ll have more on True after the marathon but highlights and video below.

Ben True had a breakthrough year in 2013, running PRs at 1500, 3000, and 5000.

True however failed to make the World Championship team and called the year, “the almost year.” True was in great shape at the end of August, but did not get in the Brussels 5000m and instead had to run the 3000m in Riete where he PRd in placing second.

True reflects back on his 2013 and talks about how he did all of his training by himself in 2013. That will change for next track season as Sam Chelenga will train with him.
