Jacqueline Hansen was the first woman to break 2:45 in the marathon (in 1974), then the first to run sub-2:40 (in 1975) running 2:38.19 for a world record 40 years ago. Her life as a marathoner was launched as a Boston Marathon winner (in 1973). Her efforts with the International Runners Committee helped win a spot for this event, and other long-distance races, in the Olympic Games. She currently "teaches teachers" about Health Education in graduate schools; and she "coaches coaches and athletes" through running clinics around the world. She has published one book and is working on another.
Get a chance to meet Jacqueline Hansen and hear her speak at Fleet Feet Encino October 3rd during our Wednesday Community Run!
