Sounds like a real txRUNNERgirl
In hindsight, while we had an offer from an 8:19 steepler, it was an easy choice.
Native Texan with Dallas ties.
Her coach is a big John Kellogg fan.
The more I think about it is the more I realize she and her coach are like a modern day/ better version of Wejo/Kellogg- with the big difference being she's actually good at the marathon. ;)
On serious note, when I read the email from her coach saying she couldn't get in to the Stanford 10,000 (and this isn't even Payton Jordan), I was like "A 2:31 marathoner can't get in to Stanford? That's a joke. Let's send her to World xc."
Now that I've talked to her, it's an even better story.
Looks like just what you were looking for when you made the offer. Go Kelsey! (and thanks to the Brojos)
