Galen Rupp Wins Chicago
“It’s just incredible. You train so hard, year in and year out, day in and day out. To have a race like this where it all comes together and to be able to win in a city that really is such a special to me given that my dad grew up here. Words can’t describe the feeling of crossing the line and seeing my family, my coach. This just isn’t about me – there are so many people that are part of the Nike Oregon Project. I’ve felt like I’ve always had such great support from the Nike family, my coach Alberto Salazar, obviously my wife and kids – they’ve all sacrificed so much – it’s for all of them. It’s just a great day.”
