Summer Exclusive: Inside Emily Richards’ U.S. Championship experience

Jul 01, 2017 - Comments: 0

There Emily Richards stood -- under the California sun, in lane two, at approximately 2:06 p.m. Pacific Time last Sunday.

And here came the camera.

Moving from lane eight to lane one, NBC’s cameraman spent a brief moment on each runner as they were introduced before the start of the race.

Meticulous time and preparation are what got Richards to this point, just seconds away from competing in the biggest race of her life, the 800-meter final at the U.S. Track & Field Outdoor Championships.

Yet she was, in no way, prepared for this.

When it happened, Erin Hester (formerly Erin Hipp) was at her West Chester, Ohio home with her two daughters, ages five and two, and her two stepsons, ages 11 and nine.

“It was something that I was following so I was very excited, knowing that she was going into the meet first in the nation,” Hester (below) said. “It was definitely something that I was following and watching. My kids were all excited about it too.”

In a typical women’s collegiate cross country race, lasting 3.7 miles, the ‘actual race’ doesn’t start until a mile and a half or two miles in.

This is according to ONU cross country coach Jason Maus, who says that after a couple of miles, “That’s when a lot of the race usually takes place, and the moves are made.”

A different kind of legacy

(Ohio Northern University Sports Information/Northern Review) Coach Maus and Rosenbaum joke with the team at a Cross Country Meet

There is no other athlete quite like a cross-country runner.  The sport requires a unique type of discipline and spirituality.  It is a constant battle with one’s self, and about half-way through the 2015 season, the Ohio Northern Men’s Cross Country team is winning that battle.  With a recent climb to #19 in the NCAA Division III National Polls, the team is looking at a promising season.  However, there is one key runner that is taking on a different roll in contributing to this success.
