“I have a shirt that says ‘Meat Thing’ on it. This is such a weird story.”
She’s back! Not only is Keira D’Amato back on the Ali on the Run Show today, here to tackle 26 questions, she’s also back on the 26.2-mile run. In January, Keira broke the American record in the marathon. In July, she got to represent Team USA at World Championships, where she finished eighth. In September, she ran the Berlin Marathon. And now, she’s ready to toe yet another marathon start line: Keira is racing the TCS New York City Marathon this weekend! Here, she talks about her goals for the race, how training has been going, where she’s at emotionally, whether she wants the American Record back, and, well, parking tickets, “Meat Thing,” and so much more.
