Kara Goucher, le texte de sa publication du 30-11-2018 13:33:00 :
The last time I ran a marathon was the Olympic Marathon Trials back in 2016. That day I finished 4th- only the top 3 went on to Rio. That race completely broke me emotionally. I went on to suffer through injuries the next two years. The thought of running a marathon again was heartbreaking, I doubted I’d ever do it again. Then early this fall I found myself naturally running more and more, meeting my coaches for long runs, getting the itch to do more. But I worried- I’m not the athlete I was 3 years ago. I’m older, more dinged up, naturally slower. Would it be stupid to run another marathon when I couldn’t guarantee I’d be fighting for a win? But in my heart, I knew I wanted to try. I have no racing requirements in my four sponsor/partnership contracts, I no longer feel like I need to prove anything to anyone, this is just for me. For my joy of running, training hard, and running the marathon. And so, I have committed to running the Houston Chevron Marathon on January 20th, 7 years after making my 2nd Olympic Team there (pictured). This race is for the love of it. #RunHou #houmarathon
