Description

This is a live recording from Sunday, April 14 at the Boston Marathon Expo. Once again, WRS host Cherie Turner teamed up with Julie Sapper and Lisa Levin from the Run Farther and Faster podcast to co-host an excellent panel. This year's panel was titled Making a Statement: Breaking Barriers in Women's Running, and it featured outstanding runners Alisa Harvey, Kelly Bruno, and Briana Boehmer.

Alisa Harvey is an elite-level competitor on the track and road who has qualified for the Olympic Trials at the 800m, 1500m, and marathon distances. Among her long list of accomplishments over decades of racing, she has competed as a member of Team USA at several World Championships, and won gold at the 1991 Pan-Am Games in the 1500. At 58, she continues to compete as a top masters athlete, setting numerous age group records. Alisa is a 2019 National Black Distance Running Hall of Fame inductee and was featured in the documentary Breaking Three Hours.

Kelly Bruno is a world-record-setting sprinter, ultra distance trail runner, and marathoner, competing as part of the professional para-athlete division of this year's Boston Marathon. She was also a contestant on season 21 of Survivor. Having undergone a below-the-knee amputation at a young age, she competes with a prosthetic. Kelly is a life-long athlete, pushing the envelope of what’s possible for para-athletes. In addition to being an endurance athlete, Kelly is physician specializing in pain management at Yale University.

Briana Boehmer, an elite runner turned long-distance triathlete, returned to running and raced her first marathon at age 42 at the 2021 California International Marathon. She finished in 2:33:20 , setting a masters course record, which launched her into the professional marathon world. Bri is on a mission to prove that age is not a barrier to pursuing big goals. In addition to competing as an elite, Briana is a corporate executive and entrepreneur. She is currently the COO of Goodie Bag, which provides marketplace solutions to reduce food waste.
