2011 Team: Sean Allan

Sean Allan
Age: 26
Huntsville, AL

Brief Biography
I began running in 7th grade and have been running since. I competed in high school and college in both cross country and track. I competed for the University of Alabama in Huntsville from 2003-2007. I enjoy being active whether it is through running or other activities such as ultimate frisbee and cycling. After completing my NCAA eligibility I took some time off of running but I am now back in the swing of things and anxious to get back in shape. I have worked at Fleet Feet Sports since 2007 and I also enjoy volunteering at local road races.

Short Term Goals
One of my short term goals it to get back under 17 minutes for 5k. It has been a few years since I've done that. I would also like to go sub 35:00 for 10k and sub 1:20 for the half.
Long Term Goals
Stay healthy and injury free is key! Other than that I have always wanted to break 16 minutes for 5k (not sure if its possible but I'd like to give it an honest effort, never know till you try). I would also like to break 3 hours for the marathon at some point.
