Humans of Allen: Mayanna McMahon


Alyssa Holloway, Staff writer

“My family influenced me a lot with running, considering both my parents ran and my brother ran in high school and part of college. It’s most likely been the best decision I’ve ever made in my life, to get involved with running, and it turned out that something that wasn’t big in my life transformed to become one of my biggest passions. What I enjoy most about running is being surrounded by amazing people, and even though running is an individual sport, I still have a team that sticks with me. My current mile time [1600m] is five minutes and two seconds, my 5k time is 18 minutes and 30 seconds, and my 800m time is two minutes and 17 seconds.”
