Levittown’s Jodie Schoppmann Wins LI Marathon

Levittown athlete Jodie Schoppmann continued her incredible 2011 string of performances on Sunday, May 1 by winning the RXR/TIA-CREF Long Island Marathon.  Her finishing time of 2 hours, 42 minutes, 54 seconds brought her to the finish line more than 25 full minutes in front of runner-up Noni Accetturi of Port Washington.

Schoppmann’s 2:42:54 finish made her eligible to compete in the United States Olympic Trials Marathon in Houston in January of 2012, with a chance to make the U.S. Olympic Team. The qualifying time for the Trials was 2:45:00, and Schoppmann bested that by more than two minutes.

Schoppmann is a proud member of the Greater Long Island Running Club (GLIRC) and runs competitively for the Runner’s Edge Racing Team of Farmingdale.
