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!
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!
