CONGRATULATIONS. We are so proud of Hana Abo, one of the five young women Girls Gotta Run supported while she was in the Running Across Borders training program for the past three years. Now a professional runner, she won her first international race, the Global Energy Inverness Half Marathon, on Sunday, March 11, with a time of 1:15:04.
From the Scottish Running Guide:
"Abo's victory in the women's event was particularly impressive given that she arrived in Inverness less than 24 hours before the race, having travelled overnight on Friday from Ethiopia.
The 20-year-old enjoyed her first overseas competition: "It's good. I really enjoyed it. I ran my fastest time but I think I can go even quicker if I get the chance to compete in other races. I would certainly like to come back to defend my title."'
