This week, it is our extreme pleasure to welcome pro runner, Paige Stoner to the Suite Run Podcast! Paige is coming off of her hugely impressive marathon debut at The Marathon Project on December 20th,  in a blazing  time of 2:28:43!   Paige's amazing performance landed her the distinction of becoming the fastest American woman under the age of 25 to run a marathon.

In this conversation, we chat with Paige about her life as a pro runner, the upcoming Olympic Trials and how she is feeling post marathon (we recorded with her just 6 days after The Marathon Project). Then we dive into her life in Charlottesville, including her favorite places to RUN, where she loves to have a great meal, the history of Charlottesville and so much more. Don't miss this episode friends and be sure to cheer for Paige at the Olympic Trials in June!
