Fernando Cabada

From 2006 through 2008, Fernando Cabada won two U.S. road racing titles and bagged a 2:12:27 debut marathon. After a promising start to his pro career, he spent most of the next three years battling injuries before winning another U.S. 25K title in 2011 and placing seventh at the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials last January, where he lowered his personal best to 2:11:53 and finished as the first non-sponsored athlete across the finish line. Now healthy and training in Boulder, Colo., as a member of Newton Running’s Team Alchemy, the 30-year-old Cabada has his sights set on making the Olympic team in 2016. He’ll get his 2013 campaign started in Houston on January 13, where he will line up against a strong international field at the Houston Marathon.
