Alan Webb Retires from Track & Field
“I gave it everything that I had … in every way. Trying to do the best I could with what I was given. That’s what I was always trying to do. Every move that I made, every workout that I ran, I was trying to get the best out of myself. That was the common denominator. Even though I didn’t do as well at the end of my career, that part never changed. That was always there. Just the results changed. And I think that’s what I was most proud of.”
U.S. Mile record holder Alan Webb‘s fantastic track and field career came to an end this afternoon at the 2014 NYRR Millrose Games. His dream of breaking 4:00 in the Mile one last time, in the same venue where he broke four for the first time 13 years ago, in his final race as a pro track athlete, before moving to the triathlon, came up short as Webb finished next-to-last in the Wanamaker Mile in 4:06.11.
Webb’s career ends with him having the following personal bests: 1:43.84 for 800, 3:30.54 for 1500, 3:46.91 for the Mile, 13:10.86 for 5000 and 27:34.72 for 10,000.
