LaCaze had a disappointing 2013 after breaking her ankle at the Birmingham Diamond League event in the buildup to the Moscow World Championships, for which she had qualified. This injury made LaCaze call time on life in Florida where she had carried on living and training since graduating college in 2012 after the Olympics. LaCaze returned home and based herself in Melbourne training with Melbourne Track Club giving her the opportunity to train with Australia's best distance athletes and coach Nic Bideau. Since moving to Melbourne LaCaze has begun a relationship with fellow distance runner Ryan Gregson, whom she first met in 2007 under rather amusing circumstances.
LaCaze set an Olympic Qualifying time of 9:45, in June 2015 at the New York Diamond League well before deadline set by Athletics Australia.
