In the fall of 2015, Hall and husband Ryan adopted four sisters from Ethiopia: Hana, now 23; Mia, 20; Jasmine, 16; and Lily, 13. Hana and Mia were both Arizona state high school champions and now compete for Grand Canyon University and North Carolina State, respectively … Hall says that if Ryan (a two-time Olympian and fastest marathoner in U.S. history) hadn’t been competing, she might have retired long ago. Instead, she’s had the best years of her career since they adopted their family and he retired in 2016 … Since making her debut at the 2015 Los Angeles Marathon in 2:48:02, Hall has lowered her personal best by almost 28 minutes.
