Understandably she's a little tired now. She went from Boston, to her hometown in Maryland, then straight to London, before coming back to school. Her aunt was waiting for her at the Willard Airport in Savoy.
The long road trip was worth it though. McFadden won both races she entered at about an hour and 45 minutes apiece. Boston was last Monday and London's marathon was Sunday. She set a course record there topping off an incredible week with a very special day.
"It was my birthday on Sunday so winning the marathon plus my birthday was perfect," said McFadden. "Couldn't ask for a better birthday present."
But it did get better. She got to take her picture with Prince Harry and found out she shared her birthday with the Queen of England. McFadden dedicated Sunday's race to everyone in Boston after the bombing that happened at the finish line.
McFadden switches gears now for track and field. But she still has her eye on two more big races, the Chicago and New York marathons in the fall. Those, plus the two she's already won, are the big four of the year.
