I have been a Deena Kastor fan for several years. Saturday evening I turned on the TV to cheer her on in the Olympic Marathon. But as you know Deena’s race was cut short just before the first water stop around the 5k mark when she broke her foot.
Here is an interview with Deena about the race and her perspective on her Olympic experience.
Deena is right, we can only prepare. We can’t control the day, the race or the experience. We can only prepare to run the race set out before us and then persevere.
