2018 Most Improved Female Runner: Shoko Okabe

At the Baystate Marathon this year, Shoko Okabe improved her marathon time by over 10 minutes! The BAA may have tightened the standards for 2019, Shoko still cruised to her first Boston Qualifier in 3:26:55. In addition to logging her first 100-mile running week, Shoko completed the Hyannis Triathlon and was a regular in the CRC race series (including signing up for the NH 10 miler the night before the race). It is no surprise that CRC members recognized her efforts and voted for Shoko as the most improved female runner of 2018.
