"I$3 missed my nap for this", she said (via USATF) on Saturday at the event at Louisiana State University, not far from where Hawkins lives in Baton Rouge. To claim the official world record, her times will need to be verified. She had begun training for track and field past year.
"I'm always outside and the phone always rings, and I come running in is how I knew I could run", she told The Post last month.
Aside from her new love of running, Hawkins has been an avid bicyclist for many years.
Born in Wisconsin in 1916, Hawkins is a retired school teacher.
