Nike or Saucony should throw some money at her, she'd be a great ambassador in the US market
Any other shoe company besides Nike sponsoring her would most likely mean she could not race in the Vaporfly (a shoe with a spring response which very well could be quite tuned for her weight and mechanics). What incentive does Nike have to "throw" significant money at her (short of 'hush-money), since D'Amato is already providing free advertising to Nike every time she performs well racing in their shoes.
Not sure, but maybe marketing her "against all odds" story coming back from tarsal coalition surgery, focusing on child raising and full-time career as a realtor and then getting back into running in her mid-thirties to become a force to be reckoned with?
Combine this with her down to earth, spirited, up-beat, fun personality that will make her a great role model to inspire the "Thirty-somethings" to get off the couch or out of the fun-run pack to test their limits.
