In honor of her achievement, she received a plaque of special recognition from UMHB President Dr. Randy O’Rear and our very own James Harrison.

The marathon was a first for Central Texas and for Ms. Hardin, who finished with an admirable time of just over five hours.

Jessica, all of us at Townsquare Media would like to thank you for representing us with determination and grace. We look forward to seeing you at next year’s Army Marathon!
