Greenville trainer is making plans to run a marathon for 2020 Olympic trials

A recent report has confirmed that Alyssa Bloomquist, a teacher from Simpsonville, is looking forward to participate in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Bloomquist, 30, will join Team USA to participate in the Olympics.

Bloomquist is a speech-language pathologist at Stone Academy, and our sources have confirmed that the teacher will run a marathon on Saturday, as a part of the Olympic trials at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta.

After the news came into the market, several news channels came to interview Bloomquist, and she, in one of her interviews, shared that her students are pretty much interested in her running career.

“A lot of them ask me about my running and ask me about my races. They always want to know if I won!” Bloomquist said.

At the November Savannah Rock ‘ N ‘ Roll Marathon, she qualified for the trials with her 2:41:24 time. She said that, during her race training, she pushed her daughter Tessa into a wanderer, as it was part of her training process. The students of Bloomquist and fellow teachers sent her parade and “good luck” signs.

We have reports that Bloomquist will be amongst the 500 women that will run the race of 26.2 miles on Saturday.

“I’m going to be into a pack of people who will be as fast or as quick as me, and I think I’ll have a team power to push me forward. So that’s what I hope,” said Bloomquist.

At present, we have limited information regarding the upcoming 2020 Olympics in Tokyo., but we will soon update the article and will share close details regarding the event. Till the time, you can stay tuned and watch the trails of the Marathon Olympic on WYFF 4 Saturday from noon until 3 p.m.
