This week’s quote comes from Maine native Joan Benoit Samuelson, a gold medal olympian and multiple marathon winner setting records along the way.
When I first started running, I was so embarrassed I’d walk when cars passed me. I’d pretend I was looking at the flowers!
Now a speaker and author, Samuelson continues to set records. Her time of 2:50:29 in the 2013 Boston Marathon is the fastest marathon ever run by a woman in the 55-59 age group.
