Quote Of The Day
“[Having a sponsor] would alleviate a ton of mom guilt. I’m taking out of my family fund to travel to races all the time, to buy shoes, to buy spikes, to get massages. It would be nice to have a fund that’s actually dedicated to training and racing expenses. … [Sponsorship] would take some of the pressure off of that, too (working extra hours to make up for money spent on the expense of her track season), just being able to step back a little more during the track season and focus on running when I need to. This year, May was my busiest month out of the year and I felt really obligated to do that because I can’t afford to not work and focus on track right now.”
