"I never thought I would be this amazing. I'm grateful for everything, and it's really been awesome. I've been training with Coach Newell for four years, and so he's really developed me into a good runner. And just determination. I've always wanted that next step. I've always seen those people in the trophy case, and been like, 'That would be so cool to be one of them.' And now I am. So, it's a dream come true."
