Her success has brought about devoted fans, including 690K+ followers on Instagram and over 745K on Twitter who stay up to date on the latest from the greatest. Always true to herself, Allyson also made headlines when she wrote an opinion piece detailing frustrations she had with Nike, and their lack of support during and after her pregnancy.
