As far behind as I was at the start of this season and after having to play as much catch up as I have, I feel like I’m been doing pretty well so far this year.
I don’t know exactly where I am. I know I’m not in great race shape, but this year, I might have to race myself into shape.
During this eight months I was sidelined, I wasn’t even allowed to trot or jog. Because I hadn’t done any kind of running motion in so long, when I first started running this year, I couldn’t even run smooth.
I had to ease my way into it. I couldn’t do my mileage runs. Stuff that I can normally do and have no problem with, I had to do little-by-little and inch-by-inch. My leg wasn’t strong enough, and my knee hadn’t been pounded … Read More »
With just two weeks until the USA Outdoor Championships, Ginnie Crawford picked a great time for her best run of the year.
Ginnie ran the 100-meter hurdles in a season’s best 12.90 seconds to finish third on Thursday at the Samsung Diamond League Golden Gala in Rome, Italy.
It was Ginnie’s first sub-13-second run of the 2013 outdoor season and she as she tweeted afterward, a confidence builder.
Took 3rd today in the Rome Diamond League meet not too shabby, slowly coming back! It’s been great racing in Italy!

After a long track season — one of the best of her career — Ginnie Crawford is using the offseason to unwind and catch her breath. Since arriving back in Los Angeles in early September, Ginnie has spent time in LA, Miami, Cancun and Seattle, enjoying life to the fullest. She took fans along for the ride with her camera and Instagram.
The offseason started just one day after Ginnie returned from abroad after her final race of the year in Croatia when a friend surprised her with a trip to the Video Music Award at Staples Center.
From there it was on to the weekend, as Ginnie celebrated her September 7th birthday with friends and family in LA.
A week after her birthday, Ginnie got the special treat of participating in a gold tournament with R&B singer … Read More »
I’m getting ready for the U.S. Olympic Trials here in a few days. It’s an exciting time.
Whenever I run an individual race, all I’m thinking about is that race, and what I’m trying to work on at that time. When I’m in a race, I’m in that moment. I’m ready to go, and I know that I have to make this race a good one and execute properly to come out with a good time. My mindset is to live in the moment and take that moment in, but once it’s gone, I’m ready to get back to work on fixing things or racing again.
My long-term goal is to compete in the Olympics and win gold there, but that’s still too far ahead to think about before each race. It does help me when I’m training and doing day-to-day workouts, … Read More »
