Max Hanson Quotes
How does becoming a national champion in this race sound?
“That sounds just tremendous! It’s a little bit overwhelming in the fact that it just happened and it hasn’t had time to sink in just yet.”
Walk us through your race: “Going into the race, I knew the two-time defending champion was in the race. He had the quickest time coming in, so I knew he would be a tough competitor today. I knew there were a lot of other great athletes in the field. I went out there and tried to run with the leaders and not let them get too far ahead. With about 200 meters to go, I just thought I was fighting for second place. He was out there and pulling away. With 100 meters to go, I thought I should give it one more shot. With 50 meters, I was starting to edge closer and closer. With five meters to go, I thought I could give one final push, and it all worked out in the end.”
