My Olympic Interview and JANET news!

Today was a bit out of the ordinary. I was at a friends house letting our kids have a play date when I got a call from the Sports Information Director from Harding University- where I went to college.  He said that Channel 4 news was doing a piece on former Harding cross country and track runner Janet Cherobon-Bawcom and they wanted to interview a former teammate.  Who is Janet?  She is a former teammate friend of mine who happens to be running in the 10,000 meter race in the Olympics on Friday!

Yes, I ran with Janet back in 2000 and 2001.  She’s come a long way!
Below are a few pictures of Janet at the Olympic Opening Ceremonies…

Janet will be one of 25 competitors in the women’s 10,000 meter event on Friday, Aug. 3 at 9:25 p.m. local time and 3:25 p.m. Central. Her race is scheduled to air live on NBC. 


Below is a short clip of the interview that ran on the 5:00 news tonight.  I couldn’t be happier for Janet.  She is so humble and sweet.  You better believe I will be watching her race Friday!

    1. Yes, I NEVER would have thought she’d be running in the Oympics someday back in college. She was running 18-19 min 5ks and now she can do them in 15 min. Crazy!!!
