More than half a lifetime later...
What a treat it was reconnecting with sportswriter, John Nash. He first interviewed me
back in 2005 (when I was 13 years old). He documented my unique experience running
at the USTAF Junior Olympics National Cross Country Championships- with
Maine Press Association’s Columnist of the Year that
year and later started a sports blog of his own. Pretty cool to be able to connect and
reflect back on that wintery day 14 years ago.
Finishing that cross country race I had trained so hard for was a huge accomplishment.
After catching up with John, he soon learned about some other great accomplishments in my life as well.
It was a pleasure to be interviewed again by him, and to see this piece come together with
an emphasis on strength and never giving up as the core of my story!
Enjoy the read♥︎
