Episode 8 – Parley Hannan

At first glance, Parley Hannan from Ithaca College came out of nowhere to win a national championship in just her second year of cross country. That much is true. But spend a little time with self proclaimed ‘open book’ Parley Hannan, and you’ll see that the 2019 champion’s story runs much deeper. Three universities, a leave of absence, learning to cope with anxiety, depression, and disordered eating, to becoming the best division three runner in the nation. From a dark place to the national limelight we’re glad to welcome Parley to Episode 8 of D3 Glory days.
We cover a lot of ground in this one. Parley’s story shows the path isn’t always linear, and we think a lot of runners will find pieces of her story relatable. As she stormed into the lead before 3k, and capped a nearly perfect season with a national championship – Parley announced herself as a contender in every race she enters. Will she be back to defend next year? That answer and more coming right at you.
