While she holds blazing fast PRs of 16:41 (5k), 34:50 (10k), 1:14:01 (half marathon), and 2:34:45 (marathon), you may know Hilary Dionne as the runner who held hands with Meb at the 2015 Boston Marathon. Needless to say, she’s so much more than that! She’s a Dartmouth grad and a Boston-based runner who competes for Craft Concept Racing, works full-time for Jobcase Inc., and competed in the 2016 Olympic Marathon Trials.
Hilary and I ran together back in 2011 through 2013 when we both ran for Boston Athletic Association. More than just a great runner, she’s also very driven in her career, and is someone who can inspire us all. I spoke with her shortly before and shortly after she competed in the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon where she finished 20th with a time of 2:45:31.
