Laura Thweatt had a monumental 26.2-mile debut at the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon, placing seventh overall, and running a sub-2:30 performance. Thweatt was also the top American female finisher. She shaved nearly three minutes off of her personal best in her next marathon apperance, finishing sixth at the Virgin Money London Marathon last spring.
The University of Colorado alum continued her top-10 performance streak in New York City by placing seventh at the 2016 NYRR Millrose Games 5,000 meters and sixth at the 2016 UAE Healthy Kidney 10K. She took her talents across the pond the following year, finishing sixth in the London Marathon with a time of 2:25:38.
Prior to her first marathon appearance, Thweatt found success on the cross country course. The Colorado native captured the USATF National Club Cross Country Championships title in 2013 and 2014, and followed with another win, this time at the USA Cross Country Championships in 2015, hosted in Boulder.
