This summer, all eyes will be on London for the Summer Olympics. Hopefully, if Maggie Vessey has it her way, and she usually does, a lot of those eyes will be on her as well.
Maggie is like a tall glass of very smart water for the U.S. middle distance team. A blonde bombshell who runs fast as lightning -- two laps around the track in under two minutes. That's what the 800 meters is for Maggie and her colleagues on the track.
A race to the line that is nearly half a mile long and it's over before even a hair is out of place for Maggie. That's just the way it works for the 30-year-old Santa Cruz native who discovered she was a "fast kid" at an early age. "I had an instant identity: Maggie The Runner."
