Olympic Marathon Trials – Best Running Social Posts


This roundup of social media responses to the U.S. Olympic Marathon trials is heartwarming and inspiring, and several of the posts actually made me cry!

The most telling for all of us runners: the woman whose dog is all over her, while she lays on the ground, excitedly asking her finishing place, and then blurts out "I hurt so bad!" We have all been there, the agony and the ecstacy of giving everything in a race.

So inspiring. The gigantic women’s field was incredible, such a profound statement.
