I don’t know-some dude. (Jk- his name is Robert Deleo)
Wanna know who won for the women?
Nina Caron of North Andover. Her time was 2:56:08.
Wanna know the cool part about Ms Caron?
She is 53 years old.
I have soooo many questions for her because I am pretty much in awe.
This is the conversation my husband and I had:
Me: HOLY CRAP!!!! The woman who WON is 53 years old!!!!
Husband: wow…53?? She was like-an hour ahead of you. And she is 22 years older than you.
Me: Funny enough-I’ve already worked that out for myself, thank you very much.
Husband: She must be single with no kids
Husband: because that much training and running would drive a spouse insane
Me: Well okay then.
Should I remind him now or later that I am signed up for another race in two weeks?? Hmmm…..
Anyway, Back to the awesome amazing insanely fast Nina…I did a little research on the Google and found out that she is QUITE the accomplished athlete. An article in the Eagle Tribune from 2009 states that
“She won the 2004 Cape Cod Marathon. She was the New England Grand Prix 40-and-over champion in 2003 and 2004. She’s qualified for the Olympic Trials. And she’s won races in almost every New England state.”
Here is what I want to ask her:
-What kind of training plan did she use?
-How old was she when she started running?
-When did she start to peak?
And most importantly…Does she want a training buddy? Nina Caron, you are my new hero and you ROCK!!!
Thanks for reading, have a wonderful day and as always-
Run Free, Run Strong!
