From the Washington Running Report:
“U.S. Olympian Deena Kastor announced on Wednesday, June 17, that she will compete in the 2009 Bank of America Chicago Marathon, her first appearance in the distance since injury forced her to withdraw in the third mile of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Marathon.”
Yes! I saw Deena win the Olympic Marathon Trials, and I was devastated when she had to bow out of the Olympic Marathon. I’m coming home from Chicago with an autograph!
