Nell Rojas is competing in the 10,000m for the Olympic Trials tomorrow! Nell is a marathoner and she finished 9th at the Olympic Trials Marathon in 2020 and ran a 2:30:29 there. She won the Grandma’s Marathon in 2019 where she ran 2:28:06. She debuted the marathon at CIM in 2:31:23 while she was training for an Ironman!
Nell is the Bolder Boulder 10k Champion from 2019 after her dad won that race 40 years before. She grew up loving that race and always had the dream of winning that race! You’ll get to hear about that in this episode!
Most recently, she ran a 32:11 to qualify for the Olympic Trials in the 10k coming off of a year of a few injuries. She is feeling confident and ready to get out there to compete so I am excited to see what she does at the trials!
