We met Cipriana during 2011’s Run for the Rabbit campaign. She was new to running, and happy to survive her first marathon. Since her 4:50 at the Hamptons Marathon, Cip’s goals have changed from finishing to finishing fast. She’s a regular at our Monday swim workouts, Tuesday track workouts and Thursday road workouts, and shows no sign of slowing down.
