Deena Kastor Aims for Masters World Record in New York

Deena Kastor stated in an interview that her goal was to beat the time she ran in her first marathon in New York in 2001. At the time, her 2:26:59 was the fastest debut by an American woman. She hopes to run as fast as 2:25. Were she to do that, it would not only shatter Colleen de Reuck's U.S. master's record of 2:28:40, but she could possibly surpass Lyudmila Petrova's world record of 2:25:43, set in New York in 2008.
