A day in the life: Runner Deena Kastor's balancing act

When it comes to modern American distance running, few names dominate more than that of Deena Kastor.
The 44-year-old runner from Mammoth Lakes, California, holds the American record in the marathon (2 hours, 19 minutes, 36 seconds), in addition to owning a bronze medal in the distance from the 2004 Athens Olympics. She also holds the American half-marathon record, and has held the American record in the 5,000 meters. She is a beast on cross country courses as well, winning two silver medals (in 2003 and 2004) at the World Cross Country Championships.
