Taylor_Kellyn-USOlyT16-thumb-500x750-36624.jpg(This is the first in a new series on the women racing in the 2020 U.S. Olympic Trials for the Marathon team. Carolyn Mather will provide us her insights into the elite women, as they focus on the streets of Atlanta, Georgia for February 29, 2020. This piece is on Kellyn Taylor, who just won the Grandma's Marathon this past weekend, with a fine personal best! We thank Carolyn Mather for this fine piece. Kellyn Taylor is a tough athlete. In the 2016 Trials, she finished sixth in the Trials Marathon, 4th in the 10,000m Trials and 12th in the 5,000 meters. Taylor had to drop out of the 2018 Boston Marathon, and, just 61 days later, wins Grandma's in a PB and course record!)

rupp.jpgBack in the 1980s, the late Fred Lebow, impressario for the NYC Marathon and Bob Bright, Race Director for the Chicago Marathon used to battle with each other in the media over who had the best marathon. It kept the newspapers, and RW and The Runner magazine full of stories on both of the marathons. Lebow and Bright were great promoters.

Today is quite different. In the fall, though. While there is some competition between NYC and Chicago, each marathon seems to have found its niche, and in 2017, each story had great stories.
