Theresa Hailey ran her OTQ for 2024 at the Chicago Marathon. She ran a PR in 2:36:40. Go check out her Instagram – @runninggingerly. She has some really fun recaps over there of the entire race!
Theresa also ran in the 2020 Olympic Trials. She is a part of Oiselle’s Little Wing Project. She is an engineer with Boeing.
