“Picture yourself as the eye of the hurricane, the eye of the storm. You have all this going on around you, but it doesn’t affect you.”
It was a big year for Emily Sisson! The professional runner for New Balance broke not one but two records! In May, Emily became the American record holder in the half marathon, running 1:07:11 at the USATF Half Marathon Championships in Indianapolis. Then, in October, she finished the Chicago Marathon in 2:18:29, effectively becoming the American record holder in the 26.2-mile distance. Now, Emily has her eyes on 2023. She’ll race the Houston Half Marathon in January, she’s committed to a spring marathon (can’t say which one yet!), and she’s hoping to run a fall marathon to complete the year. Today, in the span of 26 questions, Emily talks about how life has (or hasn’t) changed this year, shares what she’s excited about and intrigued by, and talks about her favorite and hardest races to date.
