Marie Borner Quotes
Thoughts on her national title defense from a year ago: I think winning last year gave me the confidence I needed. I have really been digging deep, and steadily improving my times all season. I knew if my legs were strong and could hold up, I knew I had it in me to go out and have a great race and a chance at a national title.
Her race strategy headed into today: I went out quickly, but I really had to do that. I was in lane one, which means I had to go and leave quickly and get out fast or you could get boxed in. The inside on lane one is the perfect spot for me. I just had to run smart and make sure I didnt get passed by people and then get boxed in. You can get yourself in trouble if you get boxed in. So, I felt really good. I hit a pretty good third lap. There was a girl right beside me on the bell lap, and I knew I had some good strength left in my legs.
