"Miles & Trials" on the News!

Thank you to ABC7 Chicago's very own John Garcia for our first-ever on-camera interview about our film and the girls' attempts to qualify for the 2012 U.S. Olympic Marathon Team Trials! 

Christina Overbeck, Heather Prekop (a new addition to the film) and I met with John at Niketown on Michigan Avenue where they were holding a huge Chicago Marathon pep rally. Joan Benoit, Sammy Wanjiru (Gold Medalist in the 2008 Olympic Marathon and winner of last year's Chicago Marathon) were there, along with other world-class Nike-sponsored Elite marathoners. We're really excited to see ourselves on t.v. and I will try to get the clip to post on this blog. 

Tomorrow, I will be attending the Chicago Marathon Elite Athlete Press conference with some of the world's best distance runners and media from all over the globe. It's sure to be a fantastic, inspiring event!
