First Trials qualification
Number of attempts to qualify
I'm engaged to Zachary Denny, who has been my partner for the last seven years and who expects to graduate from Harvard Business School in May 2024. My twin brother, Craig Nelson, is also an avid runner. We've run hundreds of races together since middle school. I also have twin sisters (two sets of twins in my family), Caitlin and Amanda, who are seven years older than my brother and me.
I ran my first marathon in October 2023 at the 2023 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. I hadn't expected to be near the OTQ standard, but was thrilled to run sub-2:20 as a debut. My first real attempt at sub-2:18 was at CIM (right after running the 2023 TCS New York City Marathon), where I was lucky to run with a strong pack that helped me get under the standard.

Favorite Running Memory
Running alongside my twin brother, Craig Nelson, at the 2023 TCS New York City Marathon. Experiencing the energy of New York with my running partner since Day 1 was a very special experience. I can't wait to re-live it some day soon.
