Deena Kastor: faster, focused and at the forefront


Deena, landscapeHow has becoming a mom changed your routine or perspective as an elite athlete?

Deena: Being a mom is bigger than a marathon. It’s more enduring, more intense and much more rewarding. 2012 will be the ultimate year in my life if I can share this Olympic experience with my daughter, Piper.

As a mom and elite athlete, you have some serious time demands. How does Forerunner help you train more efficiently? 

Deena: I wish my Garmin could freeze time so I can fit all my responsibilities into one day. My husband uses the Forerunner watch to log the miles he runs pushing Piper. Piper has used the Forerunner as a distraction in a nice restaurant so we can eat in peace. I love the efficiency and accountability of working out each morning.

Which watch are you using currently?

Deena: I really like the Forerunner 210. It is lightweight and has a very efficient GPS.

We wish all the best to Deena and Josh Cox as they face off a fierce field of competitors at the Trials in Houston. Don't forget to go to Twitter (@Garmin) or Facebook and let us know what you love most about #wintertraining. If you need some extra motivation to lace up when it's cold, here's a great video featuring another Garmin-sponsored athlete, Steve Way. Enjoy.
