I say YESSSSSSSSSS. She has lowered herself to nothing more than a promo queen that has no intention on delivering.
Kastor, 36, of Mammoth Lakes, Calif., currently owns the American women’s marathon record (2:19:36), a title she first earned at the 2003 London Marathon (2:21:16) and narrowly missed lowering in her 2005 Chicago Marathon victory (2:21:25). A runner since the age of 11, Kastor has enjoyed a decorated professional career, but still has a few specific goals she hopes to achieve including a sub-2:18 marathon. Hitting that mark would once again lower the American record – something she is aiming to do in Chicago.
