on July 18 in Mission Viejo and July 25 in Azusa, California.“The goal was to come out to these races and get two world [championship] qualifier standards and two wins,” she said. “So I’m going to try to run that 15:10 and win next week, and keep racing until my legs don’t have anything left for the season.”

Norris also recalled the advice Andrews shared that has helped her thrive as an up-and-coming professional runner. He wanted her to avoid the mistake of “making the moment so big.” For example, instead of racing an entire 1500 meters, he suggested she focus on racing the last 500 meters of the distance. “[Robby] makes things a lot smaller, so it’s not overwhelming in the moment,” she said.

After she finished the race in a new personal best on Sunday, Andrews—a fellow New Jersey track star who competed in the men’s 800 meters earlier that night—could barely contain his excitement for his fiancé and the progress she has made.Related Story headtopics.com

“The confidence that she runs with and the ferocity that she runs with is just so inspiring to me,” Andrews toldRunner’s World. “Coming from when I first met her, she was more or less a broken college runner who kind of fell out of love with the sport. She had so much success in high school, and then she got through the NCAA ringer, and to see her pull herself up and be where she wants to be, I don't know if she thought she was going to run 3:59 tonight. Oh my God. It's just incredible, and I'm so happy for her. To bounce back after a disappointing trials is just a testament to who she is and how much he loves the sport.”

To celebrate her victory, Norris said she was going to grab a burger and milkshake from In-N-Out and enjoy a date night with Andrews in Laguna Beach the following day. She is also looking ahead to her next goal: completing the rare triple of running sub-15 minutes for 5,000, sub-4 minutes for 1500, and sub-2 minutes for 800 meters.

Based on her workouts last week, Norris believes the last event is within her reach. “Now I have to find an 800!” she said.Taylor DutchTaylor Dutch is a sports and fitness writer living in Chicago; a former NCAA track athlete, Taylor specializes in health, wellness, and endurance sports coverage.
