Magdalena Donahue is a two-time Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier (2012, 2016), a geologist, and mom of two young girls. Magdalena ran the 2012 Trials while 12 weeks pregnant, and ran the 2016 Marathon Trials 16 weeks after the birth of her second daughter. Timing is everything, so she’s got her eyes on the 2020 Trials!
Magdalena ran cross country and specialized in the 5000m at the University of Oregon, where she attended undergraduate school, majoring in both Geoscience and Fine Arts. She is a native of northern New Mexico, and has been living in Albuquerque since 2009. She completed her MS (2007) and PhD (2016) in geology at the University of New Mexico.
Magdalena cofounded Think Ubiquitous, a data visualization and science communication software platform in 2014, and now spends her time creating software, using technology to teach science, and working to find ways to better integrate computation into daily application.
