The American middle-distance ace wants to have fun.

Jenny Simpson had a great 2013 season. The 27-year-old U.S. runner won silver at this year’s IAAF World Championships in Moscow in the 1500m event and admits that her female compatriots are doing well on the track.

“It’s an incredible time to be a U.S. woman racing in the middle-distances,” she told the IAAF. “Every race in the U.S. and abroad over 1500m is likely to have a competitive and deep field. Each race is difficult and every win is meaningful and I think the domestic rivalry has elevated all of us and made our event a lot more exciting to watch.”

Simpson says that for next year, her plans aren’t yet final.

“It will be a fun year with the opportunity to focus on new experiences and prioritise regular season races. Having never raced World Indoors, World Relay Champs or run early Diamond League races, it will be more a matter of narrowing down my focus,” she admitted.

“I can’t do it all, but I’m always tempted to try!”
