Jordan Hasay ran her second marathon in 2:20:57, the fastest time EVER in North America for an American woman. Jordan broke the 1985 record of Joan Benoit Samuelson, who ran 2:21:21 in Chicago thirty-two years ago, in an epic battle with Ingrid Kristiansen and Rosa Mota. Chris Derrick ran his first marathon in 2:12:50, for ninth, in the city he ran in during his early years of development.
A nicely done presser with Jordan and Chris, emceed by James O’Brien, communications director of NYAC.
Jordan is always fun to listen to, and Chris has a wonderful sense of humor. Enjoy!
