Career Highlights
10th, 2016 Boston Marathon (top American); 3-time Ivy League Champion
My parents are John and Karen Hine, and I have a sister, Melissa Leydon. Both my mother and sister have qualified and run the Boston Marathon.
Greatest Accomplishment
I wasm't top recruit in high school or All-American in college, so qualifying for four Trials is not something I ever thought I'd do when I took up the sport.
Interesting Story
I've qualified for the last three Trials while balancing full-time jobs with marathon training.
