When Sarah Palin becomes our President on January 20, 2017, she will be one of the few to have run HIGH SCHOOL track and cross county, not to mention playing point guard on her State Championship basketball team (and being team co-Captain, as I believe she was in CC and track!!).
I don't think she competed for her college team, but I'm pretty sure she was a runner, as she's been running since she was 6 or 7 years old.
Her dad ran the 1982 Boston Marathon.
She ran in the 2005 Humpy's Marathon in Anchorage, time of 3:59:36. (She was 41 then.)
And last year, on September 4th in Iowa, she ran a half-marathon in 1:46:10, a significantly better time than her marathon PR, despite being 6 years older, age 47!!
Looking forward to having a REAL runner in the White House!!
