Marianne Hogan is a professional Ultrarunner from Montreal, Qc. She has been on a roll in the last 12 months, clearly establishing herself as one of the best trail runners in the world. This summer, Marianne finished 3rd place at the Western States 100 mile before following that up with a 2nd place at UTMB. In doing so, Marianne became the first person to podium at both of the world’s most important 100 mile races in the same year since 2011 . But the most impressive thing about these performances, is that she had to overcome so much in order to be able to make it to the start line of the two biggest 100-mile races in the world. And if it wasn’t enough, she had to overcome another major injury in the last 40 kilometres of UTMB. She tore her psoas while in the lead of UTMB, and had to fight, and dig deep in order to reach the finish line and secure a spot on the podium with a huge smile on her face. She firmly believes a positive mindset can help you overcome any obstacle that life throws your way.
