Desi Has A Chance
“I think there is a good buzz around the women’s field this year. It’s definitely a different feeling. I think the last couple of years there was one person that looked unbeatable (drug cheat Rita Jeptoo). We were racing for second. I don’t feel that way this year. It feels wide open. I do think it takes the perfect day, it takes a little bit of luck, it takes a 2:20 woman being a little off of her game, but you see what Meb did last year, and it can happen. I don’t think anyone was counting on me in 2011 to be the person who came so close (to winning). If you are prepared and you put yourself in there and race smart, there is no one in the field that doesn’t have a shot so it’s exciting in that respect.”
