COLORADO SPRINGS — A Colorado Springs woman is gearing up for the Olympic marathon trials in Atlanta this weekend.

25-year-old Jamie Adkins says she qualified for the trials during the California International Marathon in December. She says her goal this weekend is to just take in the whole experience.

Adkins said, "It's really just an honor to be able to go out and compete and run with some of the most talented runners in the country."

Adkins will be competing against hundreds of other runners on Saturday.
