Fresh off of her half marathon PR in Wineglass, Lillian Park smashed her marathon PR at CIM this past weekend. Her official time of 3:40:36 was just over a 13-minute PR. [Full Results] She was strong and patient with a 1:50:03 split at the half, coming home in 1:50:33.
After the race her coach, Leah Rosenfeld, commented, “Lillian was so coachable and such a tough athlete come race day. She did everything I asked of her, no matter how monstrous the workout, and made my job easy!!! So happy for her!”
Lillian shares the love, “When I started marathon training, I thought that with enough hard work, I could squeak under the BQ time for my age group (40-44), which would be a 9-min PR. Thanks to Leah’s excellent coaching, I set massive PRs in every distance that I raced from one-mile to 18-mile. I’m enormously grateful to Leah for helping fulfill a long time dream and goal. I’m going to Boston!”
