You’ve known Krista DuChene as iRun’s Marathon Mom. After breaking her femur in the spring of 2014, the Saucony Canada Elite Athlete candidly shared her story with iRun as she battled back on a lengthy road to recovery. One year later, DuChene not only recovered from her injury, she met the Canadian qualification standard for the 2016 Rio Olympics. Having proved her fitness level at the Banque du Scotia Montreal Half Marathon, the mom of three is expected to be named to the Canadian Olympic team, which would make her the first Canadian women to run the Olympic Marathonin 20 years.
In celebration of Mother’s Day we’re sharing Saucony Canada’s short film, about this inspiring Marathon Mom and her biggest (and most important) fan base, her family.
