Having It All

If you follow the Summer Olympics, there’s a person you should keep your eye on – Keira D’Amato.  She holds the world record for the women’s ten-mile run.  Keira suffered an injury that took her out of running, and during her seven-year hiatus she had two children and established a career as a realtor.  But now, she’s achieved a spot on Team USA and has her sights on the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris when she’ll be nearly forty years old.  Keira secured a major sponsorship and is in training without sacrificing being a mother.  Her husband, an Air Force veteran, brings other veterans to cheer her on in competitions.  They’re thrilled she’ll be representing a country their friends died serving.  Talk about having it all!  God bless Keira.
