Quotes from NYRR Millrose Games

2/15/2014
 
Kim Conley (winner, women’s 3k)
“I struggled to stay on the pace there in the back half.  But, at the end of the day I wanted to win this race.  The Millrose is a prestigious event and it’s definitely something I wanted to do in my career.”

Terrence Trammell (winner, men’s 60m hurdles)
“It’s been a long blessed career.  I’ve been riddled with injuries the past two and a half years and haven’t been able to quite compete as I’m accustomed to.  At this point, I just really want to enjoy it and put it all on the line when I’m out there.”

Alan Webb (men’s Wanamaker Mile)
“It’s been a wild ride.  I hope people can appreciate how special it is to see the people that ran well today; how special and sometimes fleeting greatness can be even from yourself.  I gave it everything I had and for a short period of time I did very very well and I’m very proud of that and I’m leaving it at that.  I did the best I could."
 
Will Leer (winner, men’s Wanamaker Mile)
“I kind of just lost track of laps. I couldn’t hear a split.  It was just so loud in here everyone was going nuts.  I sort of felt like I was a little tired and I said, the people in front of me seem like they are falling off the lead pack a little bit.  I should probably make a move. I hear ding, ding, ding, ding and I thought “oh crap! I’ve really got to go, I’ve got a lot left.”

Mary Cain (winner, women’s Wanamaker Mile)
“I think it went really well.  There was part of me that really wanted to go with the rabbit.  But, honestly one thing that I struggle with a lot is really just competing…being in a pack, running with a lot of bodies. I’m 17 and I’m still not really used to it, so the goal today was to just race.”

Bernard Lagat (winner, men’s 2,000m)
“The key to getting the record is running fast because someone else did not take it too crazy at the beginning, so it leaves me with a lot of energy to close.”
