Navajo wants to run
Brandon Leslie juggles responsibilities while training for the Olympics
Acording to Brandon Leslie, he doesn't need an Olympic gold medal to prove he's one of the best, but it sure would be nice to be the first Navajo to earn it--even though it seems that his goal is moving faster and further away from him.
Leslie, who will step to the line for the 26.2-mile Olympic Trials marathon Nov. 2 in New York City, talked about the uphill struggle of his dream of running in the Olympics and carrying the Navajo Nation flag in a victory lap.
