High school record for the marathon is held by Cathy O'Brien. While attending Dover High School in Wisconsin, she ran 2:34 to finish 9th at the 1984 Olympic Trials. A incredible performance that will be hard to top. She went on to represent the U.S. at the 88' and 92' Olympics and won the LA Marathon in 1991.

Of course a story like this brings up the age-old questions about how much volume is appropriate as a 15-16 year old.

I think with the way professional finances are tilting toward the roads and away from track and field, it's natural that younger athletes are going to recognize that and begin to zero in on it. I recall Eddie Owens running really well in the New York Half Marathon a couple of years ago and thinking that it was unusual for a high school kid to take a stab at something like that.

But not unprecedented. In 1970, a high school girl from Oregon named Carolyn Walker set a world record in the marathon for women when she ran 3:01.

I believe she could be exactly that. She's done very well on the roads before, age records for the half especially. And she has credentials from 5k to 10k too, even though she prefers the longer races. Only time will tell, but I think she's got something special going on.

Maybe we'll see Alana step up to the plate and run some USARC event next year. It'd be a big step but could she be the Mary Cain of the roads?

Depends on the state they're from.
