JENNY SIMPSON BLOWS AWAY THE COMPETITION AT THE 5TH AVE MILE
As #TeamNB star Jenny Simpson closed in on the finish line of the 32nd running of the 5th Avenue Mile, the booming announcer called out, "We have not seen a dominate performance like this in years!"
With her 4:19.3 win she has now won the event twice (2011, 4:22.3) and did it this year leaving no questions in anyone's mind of who the fastest women of the day truly was.
Defending champion and Team New Balance runner Brenda Martinez did not compete in the event this year. With the two women combined, Team New Balance has owed the mile for three straight years and aims to keep the wins coming looking into next year.
Jenny races the 1500m event and has taken home back to back medals in the last two World Championships making her the most decorated American in the event of all time.
While on the track, Jenny puts her MD800 spikes into action but on the streets its a different story. The flash seen by the crowd this past weekend was none other than a Team New Balance win by Jenny Simpson while wearing the 1400 racing flat which has so many color options that many have taken this elite shoe and began to mix it into their day to day lifestyle looks. Train in them, race in them, win in them, or simply live in them. Find the 1400s HERE and the MD800s HERE .
