Throwback Thursday: Allori Torches 4:57 Air Force Record

Isabel Allori has come out of the gates swinging. 

The Liberty Common senior ran her first race since finishing fourth at Nike Cross Nationals last December, and she showed why she's one of the best distance runners in the country. 

Allori soloed the mile at the Air Force High School Indoor Open, running a new meet record of 4:57.69. 

That's a state-leading mark by 22-seconds, and the first sub-5 clocking in Colorado in 2024. 

When we dive into this a little more, it's all the more impressive of a performance.

The Cadet Field House sits at 7,048-feet. The NCAA altitude conversion for the mile is just over 11-seconds. 

That would convert Allori's 4:57 to a 4:46 - that would be put her performance within the top-two in the country this indoor season.

Adding a bit more context to her performance, last spring Allori ran 4:52 outdoors in late April at the Randall Hess InvitationalShe raced once indoors - a 10:12 2-mile at the New Balance Nationals Indoor where she finished seventh. 

Allori's performance at Air Force indicates that she's bound for a big outdoor season.
