This weekend at USAs was an absolute blast with some incredible performances from our Haute Volée! Kerri Gallagher rounded out the weekend with a podium finish in the 1500m and is SO close to locking in her spot for the World Championships in Beijing.
Rewind to Olympia, Washington on May 12th, 1984. It was the first Olympic Trials for women, a monumental event in the history of women’s running. Women were out to prove to the running world that they could not only handle the marathon distance, but even more, that they could succeed in the event. Kelly Jo Spatz was standing on the starting line, wearing her Converse jersey, about to embark on her 3rd marathon ever. It was a whirlwind of a journey to get to that point.
