Kate Grace On Overcoming Disappointment and Finding Your Best Self

More Than Running

September 29, 2021

“Time moves forward. There is the next step and there is an action to be taken…It’s no fun to have a disappointment but you fully control what happens next. Your decisions and actions can make whatever happens next…so why not make something good of it or at least try?”

We kick off the new season of ‘More Than Running’ with Kate Grace, who is coming off one of the best seasons of any American middle distance runner. After finishing seventh in the women’s 800 meter final at the U.S. Olympic Trials in June, she picked herself back up to run four sub-1:58 performances in the event including a personal best of 1:57.20 (which puts her at No. 8 on the U.S. all-time list). She also finished second in the Diamond League final in Zurich.

In her conversation with Dana, they discuss how she overcame the disappointment and her lessons on how she makes herself feel the most powerful and confident version of herself on the starting line.
