The Magic of Mammoth is a series, written by Cait Chock on the second era at the city of Mammoth, California and the emergence of the ASICS Mammoth Track Club. Andrew & Deena Kastor.
Deena Kastor had told me earlier this year, after a talk she gave to Fleet Feet Chicago runners, that she had to hold herself back in Philly during her half marathon triumph.
That sense of control will be tested in NYC this coming weekend. Deena is obviously in shape to run well in the Big Apple. She wants a 2:25. And she could become the fastest women's master's runner in NY history, surpassing Priscilla Welch, who won the NYC Marathon in 1987.
