Episode 480: Maggie Montoya – 2:29 Marathoner Running with Roots Running and Salomon

Maggie Montoya is sponsored by Salomon. She is a member of the Roots Running team in Boulder, Colorado. She has set several personal bests since joining Roots. Recently, at the Grandma’s Half Marathon she broke Kara Goucher’s course record, running 69:26 and won the race. Maggie also competed in the Bolder Boulder 10k for Colorado Team USA and they won the whole thing!

She has completed three marathons: Houston 2022, Chicago 2022, and Boston this past year. She has a PR of 2:28:07 from Chicago last fall where she placed 8th. She is already qualified for the Olympic Trials marathon coming up and I’m so excited to see what she does there!
