Keep Eye on Deena in Big D

We may see something big from Deena Kastor, the U.S. marathon and half marathon record holder, who headlines the Rock ā€˜nā€™ Roll Dallas Half Marathon this Sunday, March 23.

Deena turned 41 last month, and after a punishing World Champs marathon in Moscow last August she indicated that her days as an elite runner may be at or nearing an end.

The video above tells a different story. Taken by her husband Andrew Kastor, coach of the resurgent ASICS Mammoth Track Club, it shows Deena running comfortably at a 5:00 per mile clip. Behind her is Mammoth TC teammate Lauren Kleppin, who just ran a 2:28 at the Los Angeles Marathon, a 13-minute PR. We don’t know the context of this workout, but if Deena can drop a 2:28 marathoner in training, it bodes well for her to at least break the U.S. master’s record of 1:11:50 for the half marathon, which was set by Colleen De Reuck in 2006 at the Philly Half.
