Laura Gillette

Laura started running her freshman year of high school and then continued on the collegiate level at Goshen College.This year she is training to run a sub 3 hour race at the Boston Marathon 2017! She also plans to complete the 2RRC race series and run several marathons throughout the year.

Laura normally runs the Pumpkinvine or in downtown Goshen after work two to three days a week. She typically runs 50-60 miles a week and enjoys running without music. Laura’s favorite post-run dinner is Chicken Alfredo. She identifies as a road runner and runs in Nike Pegasus. The only conditions that keep her from running outside is dangerous weather or a sheet of ice on the road. 

Laura’s best race ever was 2015’s Indianapolis Monumental Marathon at a personal best of 2:57:00. Since then, she’s been working on her bucket list to run a marathon in all 50 states. Laura is looking forward to getting to know more runners this year in the Two Rivers Running Club. Good luck at Boston, Laura!
