1. You were second during last year’s NYRR Women’s Wanamaker Mile. This year?
Kate Grace: “I don’t know. Actually, when I ran it the first time I finished third. So, third, second and this could be the one.”
2. What is the hardest workout you do?
Kate Grace: “The hardest workout? Everything is hard and it’s crazy. It’s exciting that I’ve been training at a high level for five years. To be hit with running challenges and be running with training partners who are pushing every day that I’m extremely grateful. But I’ve been working really hard.”
