Editor's highlights: Desiree Davila talks about the injury that forced her to drop out of the London Olympic Marathon and her comeback from it since. She caught some criticism back in the summer for going to London knowing she was going to drop out, but interestingly, she said that they considered giving the spot to the next person in line, but the alternate was also injured. She didn't find out until after the Games she had a stress fracture.
Coming back from this she said it's hard to think about racing and motivate herself, but that she's thinking about the Games 4 years from now for motivation.
7 months after London she's finally in training mode as she talked about a 3 x 2-mile workout where she ran 5:50 pace for the first, 5:40 for the second, and 5:30 on the third and said, ""It felt smooth. I was like, 'This is a real pace and I hit this workout.' However small the workout was I was excited to hit that and feel good about it. And then I called Kevin [Hanson] shortly after and was like, 'I need a schedule.' Once I asked Kevin for a schedule, it's like 'All right, now I'm training, not just out here goofing around.'"
