Northwestern Medicine Delnor Health & Fitness Center Fitness staff would like to honor Elise Conner as our Member Spotlight.
On Monday, April 15, 2019, Elise will run her 32ndmarathon and 15thconsecutive Boston Marathon. She ran her first marathon at 47 years old and was hooked! As a goal-oriented person, she achieved a qualifying time for the Boston Marathon and ran in the storied event; during the 2013 race, she ran faster than normal and was still in the finish chute at the time the bombs went off.
The tragic event solidified her love for Boston and running, after seeing the city rally together.
This year, Elise has set a mighty goal to raise $10k for the Trinity Foundation to help bring the joy of running races to underprivileged children.
