The difference between winning and loosing can be quite small. In August, Molly Huddle missed a medal in the World Championships 10,000 meter by one step. As TV commentator and 1984 Olympic fourth placer Tim Hutchings noted this past weekend, Molly could have gone home and ended her season.

But that is not how Molly Huddle races.

Molly Huddle won the USA 20k, then the USA 5k, and then the USA 10 miler, all in September. In October, she won the Tufts 10k in a new PB! She has raced like a runner possessed!

Funny thing was, RunBlogRun was going to give Molly our award for September, but her racing this Fall was, well, amazing. We have given her the American Athlete of the Month for September, October and November-a first for us!

Molly Huddle continues to inspire many, and her dominating win over the .US-12k this past weekend ended her 2015 season with another superb win!

Molly Huddle, as her sponsor would say, Found Her Strong!
