In 2008, Kara Goucher was the U.S. Olympic Team Trials favorite on the track. In 2012, she was the surprise on the roads. But in 2016, the 37-year-old mother is the wildcard. When she toes the line at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials Marathon on February 13 in Los Angeles she'll attempt to make her third consecutive Olympic team. Journey, a short film from Oiselle, follows Goucher on her path to the Olympics.
