Addendum to the Addendum

Here is the whole story of that first women's olympic marathon. The woman's name from the prior post is Gabrielle Anderson-Scheiss and her time in that race was incredible. I was unable to find out what she did after that Olympics but she did recover quickly.

Just found your blog - good on you for training for a marathon! You can do it, and it'll be an adventure along the way.

Good job starting the training, and best of luck for the marathon.

Have fond memeories of the Detroit free press, Detroit- never thought I would say that!!.
