Episode 437: Paige Stoner – USATF National Marathon Champion at CIM in a Course Record of 2:26:02

Paige Stoner won the California International Marathon which was also the USATF Marathon Championships. This was her first US Title, a course record at CIM, and a brand new PR. She ran 2:26:02, which was a 51 second course record at CIM. 

Paige runs for Reebok and is a coach at Run Free Training. She ran for Syracuse in college where she had a successful career.

CIM was only her third marathon. She ran the Marathon Project in 2020, Boston, and now CIM. She is only 26 years old, so she has a long career ahead of her that I am so excited to follow and cheer her on for!
