This Is Why I Run: Courtney Bouchet
Courtney Bouchet was our first female finisher for the June 9th Light At The End Of The Tunnel Marathon.
It was her third marathon ever and her very FIRST Tunnel Marathon! She made it extra memorable with a finish time of 3:00:52 and average pace of 6.54 minute per mile, helping her to snag a Boston Qualifier! Even with such stellar timing, she hopes to run another marathon soon to get her time under 3:00. Stay tuned, because next year you’ll see her crushing the Boston course!
Courtney’s runner story starts in her teenage years when she ran for her high school running team. She went on to run for University of Colorado and now enjoys running with a group of good friends and the Portland Running Company race team down in Portland, OR! A big congratulations to Courtney for being the fastest female and an even bigger thank you for her participation in this year’s Tunnel Marathon!
