My New Running Hero
I have just found my new running hero – Ariana Hilborn. In 2008 she ran her first marathon in 4:36. Fast forward to 2012 and she completed the US Olympic Marathon Trials with a time of 2:37:37. That’s over 2 hours faster in four years. She is 3 years older than I am and has accomplished an amazing feat. Hilborn didn’t run in high school or college and her first marathon, RNR Arizona, was the same as my first marathon. I’m her new biggest fan.
Her accomplishments are amazing and she gives me hope that normal runners like myself, with enough hard work and determination, can make amazing things happen. Check out this great article about Ariana.
Just look how cute she is!
Happy Trails and Happy Running,
