“Absolutely,” Kastor answered when asked in an interview if the 2012 Olympics were still in the plans.

Kastor, who won the bronze medal in the marathon at the Athens Games in 2004, dropped out of the Olympic marathon in Beijing due to a foot injury. Kastor, now 37, is the American record holder in the event, having run 2:19:36 at London in 2006. She and her husband Andrew are expecting their first child, a girl, this spring.

“We’re excited for the challenge but there is a passion that I have for this sport that will keep me in it for a lifetime and I look forward to getting back into it,” Kastor said.
