Sam Roecker places 5th at the Pan-American Games Marathon!

Recently we introduced you to Samantha Roecker, a hardworking Philly-based nurse who is also an amazing marathon runner–one of the best in US!  

Last weekend, she proved once again that she is one of the best in the US and even at a global level, taking 5th place at the Pan-American Games (2nd American) in Lima, Peru! She finished the race in 2:32:49, less than 2 minutes after the Peruvian winner, Gladys Tejeda.

Join us to congratulate Sam and get to know her a little more with this video!

Bonus background about Sam & Pebax® technology

When we first connected with Sam we were excited by her enthusiasm and passion for both running and nursing.  Our Pebax Powered® was even more excited to share with Sam that Pebax® materials are also widely used in the medical industry, specifically for angioplasty balloon catheters.  These Pebax® polymer based devices can help make heart surgeries minimally invasive and get patients back to their daily life more rapidly So when we made the connection from medical devices to high performance running shoes, it was a match made in heaven for Sam and Pebax Powered®!
