Andrea Rameriz Limon places 6th at the Marathon Project in a time of 2:26:34 on December 20th. This was a huge break through race for Andrea as hit the Olympic Standard for the first time (Olympic Standard is 2:29:30) AND she became the third fastest marathoner from Mexico of all time.
Andrea has a remarkable story of pursuing her passion even when others told her to move on. She ran her first race at the age of 18 when she entered a 10K. Though Andrea ran in college, she didn’t realize what her potential really was until a few years ago at the age of 25 when she started working with her coach. She ran her first marathon in Houston 2020 in a time of 2:32, missing the Olympic Standard. Later in 2020 she ran the World Half Championships in 1:10, setting herself up for confidence to hit the standard at the Marathon Project.
