ING NEW YORK CITY MARATHON


October 31, 2013


Sara Hall

Sally Kipyego


NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK

Q.テつ How's it going?
SARA HALL:テつ Good.テつ Just getting in shape, both of us, I think.テつ Just starting out.

Q.テつ How is your body feeling now?
SALLY KIPYEGO:テつ Much better.テつ Much better, yes.

Q.テつ Ready to go?
SALLY KIPYEGO:テつ Yes.

Q.テつ Already gearing towards 2014?
SALLY KIPYEGO:テつ Yes.テつ It's the first race of the season, so I just want to get a mark and see where I am.

Q.テつ Well, you're well rested.テつ Are you fit?
SALLY KIPYEGO:テつ Yes.

Q.テつ What are you both predicting for your performances?
SALLY KIPYEGO:テつ Just a competitive performance.
SARA HALL:テつ I think it's too early to know.テつ I don't think any of us have done 5K workouts yet.テつ We look to our trainer to dictate that.

Q.テつ Have you run through Central Park?
SARA HALL:テつ We both ran the race two years ago.

Q.テつ What were your impressions?
SARA HALL:テつ It was uphill a lot of it.テつ This last part is obviously challenging, but I thought it was fun.
SALLY KIPYEGO: テつYes.

Q.テつ Do people tend to go off a little bit too quick?
SALLY KIPYEGO:テつ No, I don't think it was too quick.
SARA HALL:テつ No.テつ I think no one's in shape enough really to run crazy.
SALLY KIPYEGO:テつ It's not London.

Q.テつ Is it because it's not back into the track season or anything like that?テつ You both had a break?
SALLY KIPYEGO:テつ Well, I didn't have a season.テつ So I'm going to start.
SARA HALL:テつ I think this is most people's first race.

Q.テつ Who would you pick if it wasn't yourselves?
SARA HALL:テつ What do you mean?テつ For the win?

Q.テつ Who else?
SALLY KIPYEGO:テつ They put together a lot of competitors.
SARA HALL:テつ We have really good girls.テつ We have the American record holder here.

Q.テつ Can it go sub15 here?
SARA HALL:テつ I don't think.

Q. テつSo like a 15:10, 15:20, something like that?
SARA HALL:テつ That would be pretty fast for this course.

Q.テつ Do you have races planned for next year, Steeples?
SARA HALL:テつ I want to do indoor, but I'm looking to do my first competitive half marathon in December, so I'm looking at that.テつ I might do like a fall marathon depending on how the half goes.テつ So we'll see.テつ I know it's an off year from track.テつ So it could be a good time to train for a marathon.

Q.テつ You ran some great mile races in New York.テつ Those were some classic races.
SARA HALL:テつ I miss the Garden.

Q.テつ We all do.
SARA HALL:テつ Is the U.S. Open there again?

Q.テつ That was a one‑time shot.テつ That was two years ago.テつ So there's nothing in the Garden anymore.
SARA HALL:テつ I love that place.テつ The Armory is great, but it's different.

Q.テつ I bet you're glad to be coming back and racing again.
SALLY KIPYEGO:テつ Yes.テつ It's very exciting to be back.
