Uceny Speaks on Return to the United States

Morgan Uceny Seeks Fresh Start with Return to U.S.

Published by Runner's World on September 23, 2013

Morgan Uceny, the #1-ranked female 1500-meter runner in the world in 2011, had worked with coach Terrence Mahon as part of the Mammoth Track Club in the mountains of California. Late last year, she, Anna Willard and Mahon’s wife, Jen Rhines, followed him to Great Britain, situating themselves in Loughborough, England, when Mahon took a job as lead endurance coach of British Athletics. Last week came the news that Mahon is leaving that position and returning to the United States.

So is Uceny. “I’ve known for a few weeks it was all happening,” she said in New York on Friday, referring to Mahon’s decision. “So when I came here yesterday, I had packed all my stuff to bring with me. I’m not exactly sure where I’m going yet” for the long-term, at least. “The plan is to go on vacation for a few weeks, home [to Indiana], and then I’m going to go out to Mammoth Lakes and do my altitude training in the fall.” But after that, said Uceny,  “I’m not exactly sure where I’m going back to.”

She does know what she aspires to do in 2014, a year without a global outdoor track championship. “I’m actually really looking forward to indoors, and making the indoor World team is kind of my main goal,” Uceny said. “I might not take as long of a break as I usually do and try not to gain as much weight as I usually do -- try and keep some kind of semblance of an athlete there so I can come back in better shape.”
