We’re extremely proud of Denise Iannizzotto and her PR performance at the Chicago Marathon earlier this month. The 53-year old from Lake Katrine, NY, competing in her 28th marathon, finished 2nd in the 50-54 age group. Her official time was 3:14:38, 1-minute and 18 seconds faster than her performance there last year [Full results]. Since 2004, she’s now improved by 1-hour and 24-minutes when she ran 4:38:22 at the Hudson Mohawk Marathon.
“I’ve never been happier for one of my runners, ” said her coach Brian Rosetti. “Denise lives about 2-hours outside of New York City and she comes in every Wednesday night on the bus so she can train with our group (NY Flyers’ MTP). She’s one of the most dedicated and consistent runners I’ve ever coached. Once again, she executed our training and race plan perfectly, and here she is still getting faster at age 53!”
