Shoe Addicts Present: Desi Davila, Marathoner, video by The Shoe Addicts, note by Larry Eder


In a homage to Hansons Brooks athlete Desi Davila, this video celebrates her amazing performance at the 2011 Boston marathon, and her hard work over the past four years, from her 2:44 marathon debut to her 2:22.38 this past April.

The secret to the Hansons Brooks Distance Project? The Brothers Hanson would tell you, hard work over the long term, pays its dividends. That Desi was a five minute miler out of high school could not give any suggestion of the quality that she is running at now.

Davila has gone from pretty darn good to giant killer. Look at her face during the surges, her response, her reactions, her running the race tangents. Davila knows how to race, and she proved it in Boston. The video is by The Shoe Addicts. Like the music in David Oliver and Shalane Flanagan, the music was written and performed by up and coming musical acts of all music genres, courtesy of The Shoe Addicts.
