“I’ve always had a good race at Peachtree, so I’m happy to make good memories here in Atlanta,” Hall said. “This course is always tough. You’re always ready for all the hills out there. Last time I raced here was the Olympic marathon trials, and the hills got the better of me. I’m thankful to have a good experience out here today.”
While doing post-race interviews, fellow runners yelled their congratulations to Hall. She thanked them every time.
“I’m excited about continuing to race, like being out here today and getting back out there,” Hall said. “I think we’re just grateful for any crowd now because we’ve been doing races with zero crowd or spectators. Just to have a little more atmosphere and feel like we’re getting back to normal racing is really a blessing. I enjoy having real road racing again.”
