Mary (Cain) looks forward to 2016, from


Mary Cain had a tough year in 2015, after superb years in 2013 and 2014.

On her official blog,, we found this note from today about the changes that she has made in her life: living back on the East Coast. Mary Cain is still being coached by Alberto Salazar and is part of the Oregon Project.

At her level, even as fast as she is, she is still a teenager. The pressure from social media has to be tremendous.

We wish Mary Cain a productive fall at Fordham University (a fine Jesuit institution), and we hope the training goes well and we see her return to form in 2016!
