RunBlogRun, 4) Most memorable Race at any level?
Deena Kastor: "My most memorable race is surprisingly not my Olympic medal or American record, but the 2014 Chicago Marathon where I kept getting chances to steer myself toward my goal of breaking the American Masters record in the marathon. I had challenge after challenge and was able to refocus. It dawned on me that at any of those chances, I could have given up, or given in, but I didn't. I was relentless and resilient which allowed me to reach my goal."
There is one small problem with that statement - Deena Kastor didn't run the Chicago marathon in 2014. We believe Kastor is talking about 2015 Chicago when she ran a 2:27:47 masters AR.
