“She’s Heading To Hopkinton!!!”

Lillian Park set a new marathon PR this past weekend in Phoenix. Her official result of 3:33:01 was 7-minutes faster than her previous best and much needed to ensure her spot in Boston. Her coach Leah Rosenfeld is excited…

The great part about this is that she was 4-minutes faster than the Boston qualifying standard back at CIM in 2017 when she ran 3:40:36. But then they changed the standard so she had to be under 3:40…so she crushed that by 7- minutes this morning! She’s heading to Hopkinton!!! Woohoo!
