If you frequent this site, you likely know about Julie’s project. She’s trying to interview as many Masters women who hope to qualify for the Marathon Olympic Trials in January 2012. Her first interview is with Jaymee Marty, of the Run Away Fast blog.

I think there is a double-standard at work here, which Jaymee handles diplomatically, saying “I think it is what it is.” Strangely, though, that makes the series more compelling to me because I can put myself in the position of the good but not elite runner reaching for the next level.

So I’m very much looking forward to it. A good questioner, a good topic, and good questionees. Should be a nice trip.
