You’re going to want to read this great article about RI native and Charlestown, MA resident Hilary Dionne by Eric Benevides. Hilary is looking to make noise once again after placing in the top five US women at the last two Boston Marathons.
“I’m feeling excited leading up to the race,” added Dionne, who currently resides in Charlestown, Mass. and is an associate director of media analytics for Percipio Media in Cambridge, Mass. “I had a good winter of training despite the weather, so I’m looking forward to getting up there and being competitive again.”
Dionne, who graduated from Cumberland High in 2003, was one of the best competitors in the history of the Clippers’ fabulous running program. In cross country, she was a three-time All-State selection, and as a senior, she was the outdoor track and field champion in the 3,000 meters.
The same can be said for her brilliant four-year career at Dartmouth. In the classroom, she double-majored in English and economics, and outside it, she earned multiple All-Ivy League honors and posted PRs of 16:48 for the 5K and 34:50 for the 10K.
Get the rest of it here. Be on the lookout for Hilary today wearing bib number F32. That ‘F’ in front of the number means she’s one badass racer.
