American Original: Why Nell Rojas Broke Her Adidas Contract Right Before Placing 10th at Boston

April 19, 2022

Nell Rojas has always bet on herself and taken her own path. And the more she keeps doing it, the more it keeps paying off: She bet on herself at the 126th running of the Boston Marathon on April 18, where Rojas was once again the top American woman to reach the finish line. The 34-year-old from Boulder, Colorado, placed 10th in a new PR of 2:25:57. That cut 75 seconds off of the 2:27:12 PR she set when she took sixth in last fall’s 2021 Boston Marathon. Womens Running
