Austinites at Women’s Olympic Trials

In the last year and a half I’ve been fortunate to train with Ricardo and Carmen Troncoso and Rogue. During that time I had a chance to run with, ok didn’t really run “with” but warmed up with on occasion”, both Chris Kimbrough and Cassandra Kenkel, who ran in the Olympic Trials today. Chris was the first Ausinite to finish (39th in a time of 2:43:45). It’s interesting talking to both Chris and Cassie about the commitment required to train, Chris is a mother of 4 and she and her family have been able to get together to this significant achievement.

As both Chris and Cassie have said thinking about what drives us and why we’re running or training is key to keeping focused and committed to running.
