US Women's Steeple Chase

Ok so if you haven't seen any of this blowing up your news feed; then hopefully you see this one. Yesterday the US saw an awesome 1-2 victory in the women's 3000 meter steeplechase. Throughout the race Emma Coburn and Courtney Frerichs  stayed with the leading pack. And Right near the end of the race they pulled ahead of the other runners to take first and second in the steeple. This is the first time since 1952 that an american has won the steeple chase and the first time since 1912 that an american duo has swept a distance event. Congratulations to our athletes that have competed so far, and congratulations to Emma and Courtney for making history.
Watching this race made me want to get up and go running. I hope it does the same for you.
