It is amazing that she is still running pb's at 35 years old. When was Desi or Shalane or Kara's last PB? They all seem to be just hanging on while Sara is still improving.

She is someone to watch in 2020.


Nice story, but no, it does not keep getting better at age 36, 37, 38...


Yes. It can. Meb PR'd at the age of 38. In the marathon, in this day and age, people are running faster as they get older. It's simply evolution. Plus hall didn't start running the marathon until 2015, so she is still learning how to run it.

Also, Mary Ketainy PRd at the age of 36 this year in the half marathon! Her time would have been the WR last year.
