Olympic cross-country ski champion Kikkan Randall finished today’s NYC marathon in a bit under three hours. See NBC Sports. She ran with fellow former US Ski Team members Liz Stephen and Ida Sargent.
One of the things that’s most impressive is her calm and reserved public manner. Maybe she’s hyper-focused and goal-oriented all the time or perhaps she’s a private person. In any case, it’s refreshing.
Runners World has a nice article about her journey to today.
