Norwood runner Mary Wineberg: “I guess I’m a late bloomer”

Norwood resident Mary Wineberg may still be headed for next summer’s Beijing Olympics, running the 4x400 meter relay for the U.S. team. Mary told the Enquirer she didn’t realize she wanted a career in track until after she graduated from U.C. in 2002 and was teaching school. In the years since, her times have steadily improved, she left her teaching career, and now the 27-year-old says of herself, “I guess I’m a late bloomer.” Mary qualified for the 400-meters and 4x400 at the Osaka, Japan world championships this past August.
