"The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will in"
Sir Roger Bannister
For those of you that are not familiar with Mr. Carter, he won the Olympic silver medal in the shot put in 1984 and was a star player for San Francisco 49ers helping them win 3 Super Bowls. He is the only athlete in history to win an Olympic medal and Super Bowl victory in the same year. He is also the father of the girls' national high school shot put record holder, Michelle (pictured below courtesy of fanbase.com with dad on the right and Charles Haley on the left).

Here is the intro to the interview by Coach Small:
As one of the Warrior's top runners since her freshman year, Emily has not only been instrumental to the team's success as an athlete, but as a teammate and leader as well. Blaha has finished inside the top 15 at the CCS Championship the past three seasons and had a breakthrough race at the Mt. Sac Invitational this year where she ran 18:36 for the 3 mile course, her first time under 19 minutes. She is #4 all-time for the Warriors with a personal best of 19:27 for the 5k Woodward Park course and has personal bests of 5:15 for 1600 and 11:28 for 3200 meters. As the Cross Country team captain, an honor she also held last season, she leads by example on the course and off. This fall she capped her high school cross country career by being named to the San Jose Mercury News All-County Team. She will run in NCAA Division 1 next year for the Navy.
