Episode 320: Josette Norris- 14:51 at The Track Meet and ready for the 5,000m at the Olympic Trials

Josette Norris is on the podcast today! Josette is sponsored by Reebok and is a part of the Reebok Boston Track Club. She is about to compete in the 5,000m at the Olympics Trials. Josette has been having a breakthrough spring season. She got her Olympic Trials Qualifier back in February when she ran a 15:19 5,000m. Then she had her first professional win in the 1500m at the Drake Relays. Recently, at the Sound Running Track Meet in May she ran a 14:51 for the 5,000m and took 2nd in that race. Most recently she won a 1500m in a 4:06. 

In this episode, Josette shares about getting to where she is now and what the transition from a high school to a collegiate to a professional runner looked like. This really inspired me to keep working hard and continuing to pursue things that I am passionate about!

I am so excited to see what she does at the trials!
