Uzo Aduba is one tough chick!

The Orange Is the New Black star ran yesterday's Boston Marathon in record time. Aduba completed the race with an impressive time of 5 hours and 3 minutes.

Aduba participated in the 2015 marathon as part of the Dana Farber Marathon Challenge team and on behalf of her friend late Andrea Trasher, who passed away from breast cancer last year.

Prior to hitting the asphalt, the Emmy winner tweeted a cute photo of her running jersey with Andrea's name written across it. "Let's git it. #DFMC #whyirun #BostonMarathon #BostonStrong cc @DanaFarber," Aduba captioned the shot.

After crossing the finish line, the 33-year-old shared an inspirational snapshot of her looking exhausted but thrilled to be done with the excruciating race. "Done. #BostonMarathon #bostonstrong #WhyIRun cc @danafarber #DFMC #4Andrea," Aduba tweeted.

Aduba also got a race day shout-out from her OITNB co-star and bestie Laverne Cox. "So proud of @UzoAduba who ran the #BostonMarathon yesterday. Love you girl!" Cox tweeted.

This isn't the Massachusetts native's first marathon. She ran the New York City Marathon back in 2013.
