Senior Sendoff: Hannah Thuss

Name: Hannah Thuss

High School: Bob Jones

What was your most memorable meet and why?
Indoor State 2021 - I ran a new PR and broke the school record and at that moment finally felt like it had all been worth it.

Where did you face your biggest competition?
2021 Outdoor State

Out of all of your high school accomplishments, which stands out the most and why?
Running 5:13 in the mile at Sectionals this year was so exciting for me. Just a year ago I couldn't get below 5:35.

If you could do it all over again, what would you change about your running career in high school?
I would have started training with Runninglane sooner.

What were the most difficult obstacles you had to overcome during your HS Track career?
I had about 6 different coaches through my career and all the turnover really made everything really difficult. I also didn't have any girls my speed to run with so training alone almost every day was really hard.

What will you miss the most?
Coach Will from Runninglane

Do you have any advice for younger athletes?
If you're a distance athlete and you're only running 10 miles a week, add more. I learned the hard way.

What are your post-highschool or college plans? Who would you like to say thank you to?
I would like to say thank you to Coach Will Rodgers from Runninglane and Coach Gaines from Bob Jones for all of their help and guidance.
