Jordan Hasay, meanwhile, ran just 2:33:51 to finish 27th in the women’s marathon. Going into the race, Hasay’s coach Paula Radcliffe told us she didn’t have a time goal in mind, hoping instead that Hasay could get back to racing without stress after several injury-plagued years. The good news is that Hasay made it through the race (hopefully in one piece). The bad news is that she ran almost 13 minutes slower than her pb. And it’s not like she went out super aggressively. Her first 5k was 17:23 (2:26:42 pace) and her 10k split was 34:55 (2:27:20 pace). Overall, her half splits ended up being 74:23-79:28.
Clearly not a good race for her but let me correct the record before I go to sleep. She is the opposite of flash in the pan. A flash in the pan would be a one hit wonder -she's had amazing success at the high school, college and pro levels.
