Tucson resident Sarah Sellers shocked the running community by finishing second in the 2018 Boston Marathon.

Sellers, a nurse at Banner UMC, was an unknown runner before the Boston Marathon and ran right into the national spotlight.

Three months later, Sellers is being recognized again. She will receive an honorary ESPY at the 2018 ESPY Awards.

ABC News reports she now has bigger goals for herself -- to qualify and compete in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

The 2018 ESPY Awards airs on July 18 at 5 pm.
