Little Lessons for Molly Beckwith
Cara Hawkins, Women Talk Sports
Molly Beckwith is a name that is being heard more often in the world of track and field. The first time her name came up this season is when she led and won the 800 meters at the Mt. SAC Relays (2:00.34) and then taking the win in a PB at the Penn Relays in the Mile. This past weekend she won 800 meters at the Billy Haynes Classic in 2:01.70. She will compete in Doha, Qatar this Saturday, May 12.
Her and her coach recently discussed this start to the season “I ran pretty fast, pretty earlier. 2:00 flat isn’t actually too fast right now,” she further explains, “Looking at the bigger picture that I’m trying to accomplish is more than that. 2:00 is a good starting point for me because I know 1:58 is just around the corner and potentially faster than 1:58 is in my future.
