"But I remember a few times looking at Desi and how spunky she looked. I was like, "Shoot, I don't feel like my legs are feeling the way hers are." Her body was so fluid and I thought, "Uh oh. I think I'm in a little bit of trouble."
So.....according to Shalane she has to work harder than others (including Desi) because her legs are longer. Hmm.....long legs didn't seem to hurt Caroline Rotich or other major winners with "longer legs".
