Carrie Tollefson, Up Close and Personal24 Aug 2004
I haven't been paying real close attention to the Olympics, but I did make sure to watch the women's 1500 m heat this evening to see if Carrie Tollefson would qualify for the next round. Carrie is from my hometown... welll, not exactly, she's actually from the town next to my hometown. And, I don't exactly know her (she was 3 years old when graduated from high school), but it's a small county where everyone knows everyone else, so I must know her cousin or something. (And like my wife said, Tollefson is a good, solid Minnesota last name.) And, yes, she did make the semi-finals, so she runs again in Athens on Thursday. Go, Carrie, go!
