In Her Own Words: Carrie Tollefson on the Comeback Trail

Here's a new video from 2004 USA Olympian Carrie Tollefson in which she describes her reunion with former coach Dennis Barker and her training on the track after a three-year absence from competitive racing. Her first track race in the comeback was a 5000 meter race at the Hamline Invitational in her native Minnesota earlier this month. She finished 2nd to Katie McGregor, in 16:26.63. Tollefson is entered in the 5000 meters at Sunday's Payton Jordan meet at Stanford, and is hoping to hit the Olympic Trials standards ("A" standard = 15:35; "B" standard = 15:50) to assure herself a spot in the Trials.
