Quote Of The Day
“When a race ends, I typically don’t remember much of it. … The Olympic Trials, however, were different. I remember my frustration at the crowding in the pack before I made my breakaway. I remember seeing myself on the Jumbotron, my eyes looking far right, to the huge pixilated me, away from the camera directly ahead. I remember my surge to the front with just over three laps to go, and the crisp sound of my own feet off the rubber, leaving the frantic bustle behind me. The chest-beating freedom as I looked up at the crowd with a lap and a half to go, no one in my way, their cheers only for me. And I remember the feel of that first hitch in my stride. My melting strength and the descent of gravity, as I left the near curve with 3/4 of a lap to go. I remember the reemergence of footsteps behind me, louder and louder until two bodies passed, so quickly, with a 1/2 lap to go, and took my last bit of lift with them. And the whole world slowed down, and in the final straightaway the cheers finally faded from my ears into cottony silence, and my eyes fixed on a finish line that I pulled and coaxed and just would not come to me. And I remember the falling weight of another mass drop past me in the very last step of the race, and with it went my Olympic spot.”
