Jordan Hasay has only been running marathons for less than a year. It was last January, 2017, that Jordan Hasay opened our eyes with her supurb half marathon in 1:08:45. In April 2017, Jordan Hasay took third in Boston with a fine 2:23:00 debut! Jordan Hasay had found her event. Her strength, her speed, her size all added to her ability to compete with the toughest women in the event!

And then, Jordan Hasay put her head down and ran this amazing marathon in Chicago in October 2017. Her 2:20:57 broke the CR of Joan Benoit Samuelson. There is this wonderful picture of Jordan Hasay with Paula Radcliffe and Joan Benoit Samuelson from Chicago. Jordan Hasay showed some serious racing focus as she stayed up front with Tirunesh Dibaba, and running a 2:18 pace for the first ten miles. Her gutty finish, running and staying on a 2:20 marathon pace for so long, opened many eyes.
