Quote Of The Day
“[Boston] was just a rough day for me. I was disappointed, but I’m real thankful I have an opportunity to run here, especially just given all the hard work and lot of training I had done. You put so much into any marathon, months of a lot of sacrifice and hard work. So, it was definitely real disappointing to kind of, like, seem to go to waste, to have the race that I did at Boston. … Physically, I was not worried about recovery at all. Three weeks is plenty of time to get back. I actually got some good training in. So, I kind of looked at it as doing a hard long run. I actually thought back to the Olympics as well where I ran a 10-K (Rupp ran the 10,000m on August 13 and placed fifth before running the marathon on August 21 and placing third). That was definitely disappointing, too, from what I had hoped for. I had to come back eight days later and run a marathon then, so this is even a longer turnaround. It (Boston) wasn’t even as taxing physically as what I did there. I’m certainly feeling I’m ready to come back ready to go for this race.”
