Hononegah grad runs in NYC marathon


While we were all sitting around eating Halloween candy this weekend, a Stateline native was running a marathon. 

The New York City Marathon, to be exact. 

Hononegah High School alum Katie Downin finished 29th in her age group and 290th overall in the women's category. 

Her time was 3 hours, 29 minutes. She crushed her old marathon record by 30 minutes, helping to qualify her for the 2017 Boston Marathon. 

13 News spoke with Katie on the phone earlier today. She says she's still high from all the positive energy, but is looking forward to some recovery time. 

Congratulations to Katie from all of us at 13 WREX!
