Emily Sisson, Molly Seidel, and Sara Vaughn lead the American women in Chicago.
I am in total awe of you (always but today especially, getting this written and out the same day as most of the action!). You are amazing and so appreciated. Thank you Allison!
As always Alison you have elevated women’s running with your detailed and knowledgeable reporting. Thank you!
Thank you for your work, love your newsletter! I'm new to watching elite runners in marathons. I was wondering, why isn't there a volunteer to hand Sifan Hassan her bottle at the aid stations (like the famous Claus does for Kipchoge at the Berlin Marathon)? Why didn't her pacer get the bottle for her instead of her getting it herself? Or, why didn't she have a smoother process for getting the bottle - isn't that something they practice? Thanks again!
Thanks for your work. NBC Chicago was not covering the marathon so much as the "event" ... hence the profusion of soft news pieces like they feature every morning, often to the exclusion of the action on the streets. to be fair, that was probably what most of their audience expected.
