Catrina McAlister has the Courage to Chase Big Dreams
In her own words, Catrina talks about how she came to be a runner, and how she's preparing to compete in the 2020 Olympic trials:
THE BOYS' TEAM GOT TO GO ON LONG RUNS, DO HARD WORKOUTS, AND TRAVEL TO RACES. THEY WERE PUSHED. I WAS STUCK IN THE PARK [WITH THE GIRLS' TEAM] TO MAKE FLOWER NECKLACES OR GO ON A 'JOG'. WHILE WE WOULD STRETCH IN THE PARK, LAUGH, AND TROT A FEW LAPS, I FELT I COULD DO MORE.
