Houston will host the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Marathon on Saturday, January 14, 2012, a first for a single city to host both the men's and women's Olympic Trials races at the same event.

NPR transcribed the report, "The Game Goes On" which was broadcast Tuesday, May 3:,

"Talaya Owens is on the university's women's track team, which decided at the last minute to attend a key track meet in Des Moines last weekend.

It was a tough call: Eleven of the team's athletes were displaced. The team didn't do quite as well as they'd hoped — they were tired, stressed out and their flight was so late they barely made the meet. But the thousands gathered cheered them like they were the home team.

Hollman,_Lena.jpg__.jpgWhen you read this, I am about to celebrate my 20th anniversary as a masters runner. I will be 60 years old in May. Yes, 60!! I can’t quite make it sink in that soon I will “officially” be considered a senior, and get the matinee rate at many establishments, including my favorite movie theatre. Especially since I feel as vibrant as if it were my 20th birthday coming up instead! With a recent career change into personal training, and an improvement of a minute and a half in my 5K time during the past year, it’s like I am a young woman starting out in life.
