Run SMART client Meghan Lockett, 14 years of age, competed unattached in the Crimson Classic XC Invitational at the University of Alabama last weekend. She held her own against the much older and experienced female runners finishing 28th overall out of 203 finishers. Her time was 18:24, a 21-second PR for 5k! (Full Results)
It’s difficult enough for a freshman in college (typically 18 years of age) to transition into Division I level competition, but for a 14-year old to jump in a major Division I Invitational and run with the top runners in the field is truly incredible. She’s an amazing talent.
Meghan works with Run SMART coach Alicia Shay.
