Q&A: Sara Hall on Tokyo Marathon, Her Busy Schedule, & What's Written on Her Bathroom Mirror Right Now

"Breaking 2:18, that might be possible at some point...And I think if I can do that, definitely some of these other [Americans] – Keira [D'Amato], the people that are running well – can do that too," said Hall who thinks she has some "secret weapons" in training that help her excel at age 38. *MB: Sara Hall thinks running 2:17 in the marathon might possible, and says she has a some "secret weapons" in training 
  There’s some outside-the-box-stuff I do that I don’t really talk about because they’re my secret weapons. But I feel like those things are really what has allowed me to have the realistic jump I had in Berlin (in 2019 when Hall lowered her pb from 2:26 to 2:22) and I’ve really continued to do more and more of that type of training. They’re kind of secret, but I think what’s helped me is getting outside the groupthink of marathon training in the US. And that goes back to running Boston and Worlds and all these races. There’s a culture of we do things a certain way, but for me, I’ve been able to train in Kenya and Ethiopia and I’m just a curious person. I like to come up with outside-the-box stuff and Ryan’s similar. So I think some of that has really benefited me, having different perspectives and trying different things.
