Runner's World Q&A with Millrose Games Champ Sheila Reid
We spoke to Reid after her mile win.
Were you worried at all early on? Was dropping to last place in the cards, in the race plan?
Sheila Reid: It was a good field and it went out quick. I’ve got a good feel on that sort of pace. In the back wasn’t slow, it was just not as fast as the front girls. But you should never bank on people coming back to you, so I did have to start cranking it up a notch.
Were the fractions along the way about what you expected?
SR: I think so. I kind of stopped looking after 800. I just wanted to be real comfortable, no quicker than 2:12 through the half. And then, from there on out, I was just trying to feel good, trying to feel out the other girls and how they were feeling.
