The Butcher of Damascus


George Banker wrote extensively about Michelle Miller's finish as the top American woman at the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half Marathon.

Miller adds, “My main motivation is my undying love to compete and test myself. It is very satisfying to set goals and then create and execute a plan to achieve those goals. There are times when you question yourself or motivation wanes and that's when it helps to surround yourself with the right people. The Georgetown Running Company Race(sic) Team has been an invaluable addition to my training. Not only do I have a supportive and 3 talented group(sic) of athletes to train with, I also have a coach who is there to pick me up when I am down and to raise the bar when training is going well.”

That's a nice write up and good press for Michelle and GRC. Question: Is it a good idea to tag someone who works with furry creatures for a living with the moniker "Butcher"? That may just be the seed of the first "Occupy Poolesville" rally.

As far as we know, she's been doing workouts with Andy for years and he doesn't seem phased by it

I think we should use this to get more funding for the team...

Great write up! Michelle, you rock!

I think Butcher is appropriate, and fortunately for the monkeys, that side of her personality only comes out on race day. And fortunately for all of us as well.
