My name is Alana Hadley and I am a 16 yr old, 11th grade student at Ardrey Kell High School in Charlotte, NC. I am a competitive distance runner pursuing my dream of being a successful professional marathon runner, which gives me the opportunity to do some pretty cool things, go some pretty cool places and have some pretty cool adventures.
I have a passion for the longer races (half marathon and marthon) and my goal/dream is to one day be a top professional marathon runner and represent the United States well in the Olympics and other major races.
I am a member of the 2016 U.S. Marathon Trials Project as I work towards making my goals and dreams a reality, and recently qualified for the 2016 trials with a 2:41 marathon in Indianapolis (Nov 2013).
So far my personal bests are: 16:51 for the 5k, 34:59 for the 10k, 1:16:41 for the half marathon, and 2:41:56 for the marathon.
This is my website and where I will report in my journey, adventures and progress towards my goals.
