Conquering Uncharted Territory; Breaking the Tape in her Debut Marathon! @haagendazs_86
Meet Lauren Hagans, the 2024 Grandma’s Marathon Champion, who made a sensational marathon debut, scorching 🔥a 2:25:55, running the fourth-fastest U.S debut of all time! Though Lauren has coached many marathoners, and is surrounded by strong, @naz_elite rockstar marathoning teammates who shared helpful nuggets, this was truly uncharted territory. “You never get to a starting line by yourself! Little pieces of magic were shared with me at moments of doubt along the way to my first marathon. They helped me develop trust.”
We discussed: Her build-Lauren was concerned about pushing her mileage too high due to past injuries, and her Coaches built her a plan that played to her strengths. Mentors/Coaches who’ve had an impact-Todd Harbour at Baylor @oslo80 Ben Rosario @coachbenrosario1 Jenna Wrieden @jwrieden Most meaningful races-1:09:46–4th-place finish debut at the USATF Half Marathon Championships. Grandma’s best executed race plan, and how awesome it was to share the joy with her Coach Jenna at the finish line. Stay in the fight moment. What’s next.
Lauren has competed in 3 Olympic Trials on the Track and is stoked 💥to compete in the marathon trials in Feb. She is hoping to rock a fast 💨half at Valencia before then. Look forward to following more of her inspiring 🌟 journey. Let’s dive in and take a listen 🎧 https://pod.fo/e/18e479

First workout back tomorrow!! A new training block for fall races begins 🥰🥰 Every time I say I’m gonna die and every time I am more than fine 😅 I just don’t want to take anything for granted. Back on the track tomorrow for some 200s my favorite 🥰
Wow I forgot how hard getting in shape at altitude is!! Feeling very very unfit rn but I needed some physical mental and emotional downtime (life amirite) before going into what is hopefully a big fall season of racing! Looking forward to getting my butt kicked by my teammates and Flag community until I’m fit enough to BE the buttkicker 😂😂 soon I hope!! In the meantime, stonewalling the negative thoughts and taking accountability in the process ❤️❤️ can’t wait to cheer everyone on competing at USAs !!! #hiflagstaff PC: @_alisonmarkham
