In 2016, at the Rio Olympics, Mara Abbott was caught by a group of 3 less than 200m to the finish line. She took home a 4th place and in her heart she knew she gave everything she had. Little did she know this was the race that would define her racing career. Not having won the Giro Rosa twice or the National Championships, but instead having just missed out on a medal in her career's finale.
Mara takes some time to talk about how that feel, to have people view a race you view as a disappointment as a triumph. She lets us in on here thoughts during and after that race and the ongoing process of dealing with retirement.
