Shannon Siragusa finished first masters female at the Hartford Marathon. The 43-year-old from West Simsbury, CT negative split (out in 1:28:00) her way to a new PR. Her official time was 2:54:57. [Full Results] She even managed to kick it in the final 1/2 mile at a 5:12 per mile clip.
Thrilled with this! I ended up running 26.5 and my 26.2 pace was one second off the VDOT pace you projected. This is a PR for me at 43 years old!!!
I could not have done it without your plan. You had me feeling strong from start to finish, but more than that, you got me to think beyond sub 3. I actually feel the best I’ve ever felt after a marathon. Thank you.
