“She stood in the storm and when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails.” Elizabeth Edwards
Moments after the NYC Marathon I was very emotional. I had finished 11th, but as the 5th American. So if the Olympic Trials marathon were to be contested on this day I would not have made the Olympic Team. For another time in my career. My confidence was low. Here I was training my butt off, acting as if I should be in the conversation of the top American women trying to make our US Olympic Team. I was 5th American, and still there were 5-10 other women who weren’t even in that race who have a legitimate chance to make the team. I thought maybe the marathon isn’t my event anymore, I can’t hang with the best.
