For those of you that read Runner’s World magazine, did you read the story about Desiree Davila in the latest issue (February)? It is such an inspiring story. A must-read!
She will be running, of course, in the Olympic marathon time trials in Houston on Saturday. According to the USATF site, NBC will be broadcasting two hours of the event. Not live, though.
I’m really excited to watch Desi. Did you watch Boston last year and see her finish? Amazing. I think she’s going to rock it. She’s so determined! Good luck, Desi!
Here’s a quote from the article in Runner’s World:
“Running is just you, the work you put in, and the clock. You can’t cheat yourself. If you don’t put in the miles, you can’t go to the starting line thinking you’re going to pull a miracle out of nowhere. You get out exactly as much as you put in.” -Desiree Davila
Random thought I had: What do you thing elites think about while they’re running? They don’t wear music. What do you think is going on in their head … or do you think they just blank out?
