McGorty details comeback story


In a feature interview with Runner’s World, Sean McGorty outlined the struggles he encountered in 2019 that ruled him out for the season. The Bowerman Track Club athlete revealed how close he had come to losing his career due to a staph infection in his foot.

“July, August, and September were some of the hardest months of my life, but whether it’s stubbornness or drive, the goals never shifted,” he said. “If I let myself sit on the worst outcomes, it wasn’t going to help.”

“The dark and hard moments with running can teach you a lot about yourself. When you have it taken away, you really see how much it means. I’m incredibly fortunate this is what I get to do with my life.”

After a promising indoor season, McGorty opened his summer campaign with a big PR over 5000m late last month, clocking 13:11.22 in Portland.
