Trail Runners Discover a Sandbagger

Sharon Does Boston

She just seemed like one of us—casually enjoying our Sunday runs—laughing and jogging with the group. Inside the shell presenting herself as a mother of three, who ran only when time permitted is a whirling dervish. Yes, our own Sharon Hanley (second from the left in the photo) is a monster on the racing circuit. Do not race this woman for pink slips or any other monetary amount she might propose—She will eat you alive. She came in second overall in the Pasadena Marathon last week end in 3:15 despite the rain and strong winds. She is focused on the upcoming Boston Marathon, and we wish her the best. After that, she vows to return more regularly on Sundays, to whip us into shape. It is pretty awesome when someone barely has time to run due to time constraints, and can perform like this. You go girl! UPDATE: Sharon just returned from Boston, and despite blisters and leg cramps in the latter stages of the race, still turned in a very respectable 3:23.
