Grete was one of my first heroes in the sport. Her strength, legacy and legend will live on for decades to come. One of the greatest distance runners of all time.
Today I will sit down and tell my daughter, Alana, all about Grete and just how marvelous she was as a runner and person. I only regret not having done so before now.
RIP Grete and thank you for all you did for the sport I love.
