Lanni Marchand is the ebullent new Canadian record holder for the marathon. I met up with her on Friday, at the BAA Press conference for elite athletes. Lanni ran a new Canadian record of 2:28:00 at the Scotia Bank Toronto Marathon. Marchand had set a PB by four minutes! The Canadian record that Lanni broke was set by Sylvia Ruegger from 1985 at the Houston Marathon (2:28:36).
