This is the first Penn Relays women’s title for GBTC in history. Fellow GBTCers are encouraged to check out Laura’s super bling-bling Penn Relays watch.

Liz Ryan awarded 2015 Margaret Bradley Award

Liz Ryan

Liz graduated from Brown University in 2013 with a BS in Environmental Science and a BA in Architecture. She currently works as an Architecture Associate at ART Architects in Boston. She began running in middle school with her older sister at the USATF CT Junior Olympics races. At Farmington High School (CT), she left behind downhill skiing, soccer, and tennis in order to join Cross Country and Track under the unforgettable guidance of Chip Apfelbaum. She ran two years on Brown University’s Varsity XC and Track teams. During this time her mileage climbed steadily from 12 miles per week to 45 and her PRs dropped to 10:14 (3k) and 17:50 (5k XC).
While road and cross-country 5Ks are her favorite races, she enjoys the chance to mix it up on the track with the mile and 3k and relays. She ran her first marathon in September 2014 (3:02:33), and is looking forward to more seriously training for that distance in the future, starting with the Boston Marathon in Spring 2015. She attributes all her recent success to her amazingly supportive GBTC teammates and best friends, who cheer her on during Tuesday track workouts, drag her out of bed on the weekend for long runs along the Charles, and never fail to share a post-race beer. Coach Tom Derderian says, “Liz seems ubiquitous, road, track, or trail, and like Margaret is always there to help the club team score as high as possible.”
