Jordan Hasay is an iconic runner from the Golden State. Countless times during her high school years, she made the pages of California Track & Running News, one of our publications. She was featured in Athletes Only during her college career and as an elite athlete, she has been featured in runblogrun as well. I was in Houston last month when Jordan Hasay ran 68:40 for the half marathon. It was a wonderful race for Jordan Hasay. Coming back from injuries in 2015, short on training in early 2016, Jordan is starting 2017 with a strong statement of fitness. Perhaps fitness and the dedication of her further career to her beloved mother, who she lost in 2016, are part of answer to her fantastic run in Houston. Renewed fitness and extra inspiration are hinting at an exciting 2017. David Hunter's feature puts her last five years in perspective, and her renaissance in 2017.  —Larry Eder
