I listened to Amy's interview on the Cloud 2:59 podcast. I think getting to Rio was always her plan & I don't think she was wanting a Tokyo qualifying time. She said She wanted to try something different & not just be focussed on times now she was an FV40. Reading between the lines I think she realises too many younger faster ladies ref Tokyo so she just wanted a different challenge & Boston was it. Interesting to note she said she also said a 1/3 of her training time was spent on a turbo bike as she could no longer take the super high mileage.

My eldest ran a session with her at the Gateshead track in the first few weeks of him being up in Newcastle at Uni - said she was really down to earth. I’m a fan of hers with the way she engages with the local club athletics scene too, and parkrun volunteering etc.

Yeah Aly's a good 'un at local events. Always says hello and acknowledges people who cheer her on. She sold me one of my first pairs of running shoes when she worked at a fitness store in Gateshead about 10 years ago.

I remember doing the first Locke Park 20m (laps of 1m each). I thought I was doing well and she lapped me looking as fresh before I'd even finished 3 laps!

That's lovely news, congratulations to her. There every chance she could come back stronger than ever too as some women do if they choose to return to their running careers.

Getting pregnant will just be a convenient excuse to mask the epo, is how I reckon the idiots on the will see it!
