Motivation Monday – Ariana Hilborn

Ariana has been an inspiration for me for a long time. As someone who picked up running later in life (her first marathon was 4-5 hours!), she now is a pro runner who has run 2:37 and trained with Hanson’s Brooks.

After a big setback this summer, she moved back to Phoenix. She is working with her previous coach again and has been running AMAZINGLY well lately, including a 1:14:19 1/2 marathon at the Houston 1/2 Marathon Championships. I can’t wait to see what she’ll do this summer/fall!!

She did a great interview here that’s worth the 30 minute listen!

Also note that she mentions Dr. Asp! I’m telling you, he’s phenomenal!
