Mariam Kahn Quotes
Your mindset headed into today’s event and how that transpired for you:“I figured this would probably be my last meet. I knew that I had to win, and I had to do whatever I had to do to win. I was concerned though because I am coming back and recovering from a pulled hamstring. I hadn’t raced at all in over a week, and I had barely run to get ready for today. So, I had to be confident in all the work I had put into it up to that point.”
What it means to post the third-fastest Division III time in history? “I had no idea! It truly does mean a lot to me. I feel proud of myself and my team and my coach. I’m just really happy!”
